Crossrail is seeking planning consent for a 320,000 sq ft development in Paddington, London.
The 15-storey office block will be located at the junction of Bishop’s Bridge Road and the Grand Union Canal and incorporate access to Crossrail, National Rail and Hammersmith & City line services.
Improvements will be made at the front of the new tube station and a public lift and staircase will be provided from the canal towpath up to Bishop's Bridge Road.
"Crossrail is the first UK rail project to deliver an integrated package of new and improved rail infrastructure alongside high-quality over-site development and public realm improvements which will boost urban regeneration," explained Ian Lindsay, Crossrail Land and Property Director.
The new Hammersmith & City station should be completed by 2014, while Crossrail will become operational in 2018.
This will see up to 24 trains per hour running during peak times between Paddington and Whitechapel.
