Bishops Square, London Project1 min read

Bishops Square in London is a large commercial property development in the Spitalfields area, which bridges the City and the East End, and provides a new public space for London – larger than the Piazza at Covent Garden. It was previously owned by Hammerson, and later on, went joint ownership with the Oman Investment Fund. It is now owned by JP Morgan who is an American multinational investment bank.

The market area covers 3,700 square metres of retail space, 72,000 square metres of offices, along with apartments, community facilities, cafes and restaurants. The new development included the restoration of the old market buildings along Brushfield Street, with a new pedestrian route behind, lined with shops along the promenade it opens up unexpected views of Hawksmoor’s magnificent Christ Church Spitalfields.

Cawdor Stone proudly say that they worked on this building in London completing it with a huge entrance hall floor in granite, together with stone floor and wall linings to lift lobbies, stone exterior decking and 15000m² of granite-hard landscaping.


Granite is a coarse-grained igneous rock composed mostly of quartz, alkali feldspar and plagioclase. It’s formed from magma with a high content of silica and alkali metal oxides that slowly cools and solidifies underground.
