There will soon be new office space in London after the granting of permission for developers to begin construction on a new commercial property in the place where St Alphage house and tower currently stand. Two new landmark buildings will be constructed on the site, which have been designed by Make architects and shall result in the creation of another 500,000 square feet of office space in London. One of the new buildings will house 300,000 square feet of that office space, with 195,000 square feet in a new 16-storey tower. The development will also include the creation of new walkways and bridges in order to enable better access from the site to other areas of the city.
The plans have been met with “overwhelming recognition”, according to Martin Jepson, the managing director of the London division of Hammerson, which is the development company behind the scheme. “(This is) a result of our commitment to constantly evolving the design and challenging traditional preoccupations of both the site and occupiers needs,” Jepson says. “This is a prime location… we expect London Wall Place to become a well known city landmark.”
“This is a complex site and the scheme balances the needs of Barbican residents with the reinvigoration of the city,” claims Make partner Ian Lomas, who says that the company is very “proud” of their planned project. The development now only has to receive the approval of the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson.
