Renzo Piano’s Baby Shard scheme revealed

[First look] These are the latest images of Renzo Piano’s 17-storey Baby Shard project close to London Bridge train station in London

Officially known as ‘The Place’, the project has been described as the Baby Shard because it is close to Renzo Piano’s 72-storey Shard skyscraper and is being built by the same developer and architect.

Sellar Property Group is developing the 56,000m² scheme as part of its £2 billion London Bridge Quarter redevelopment programme.

Ivan Sellar, chairman of Sellar said: ‘The Place will be London’s largest and most efficient office building to hit the market in 2013 – at a time when there is expected to be a real shortage of prime Grade A space available to let.’

Joint letting agents, CB Richard Ellis and Colliers International, added: ‘The finishes, while not identical, are consistent in their outstanding quality. There are unique features such as the Winter Gardens that, combined with Renzo’s pre-occupation for natural light, further marry the two buildings together.’
