WilkinsonEyre is redeveloping a key site in the heart of the City of London to provide a new high end commercial tower.
The proposed 51-storey tower in the heart of the City will provide an office-led, mixed-use building with flexible retail space at ground and mezzanine floor levels, and a public viewing gallery at level 50.
Designed for client Mitsubishi Estate London, the 71,500m² building is conceived as a series of stacked blocks in response to its urban context.
The proposed building will include high sustainability and low energy initiatives and has been designed to achieve a BREEAM “Excellent” rating.
Having previously received planning consent for a 40-torey tower, the scheme was updated and again received planning, following the approval of a number of other towers in the eastern cluster that impacted on the original proposal. The new design adds a further ten storeys, totalling 120,000ft² of space to the previous approved plans.
