Shell Centre masterplan revealed
The first image showing early plans for the redevelopment of London’s iconic Shell Centre has been revealed
The draft Squire and Partners-designed masterplan – presented to the local community this week – gives an early indication of plans for the high profile 2.15 hectare riverside site.
The vision includes two office blocks, three residential blocks, two ‘slender’ towers and a new public square. The landmark, river-facing 27-storey skyscraper, part of architect Howard Robertson’s original 1961 Shell Centre complex, will remain on the site.
Kohn Pederson Fox (KPF), Patel Taylor, Grid Architects and Townshend Landscape Architects have been appointed to work on the project.
A spokesperson for the joint venture developers said: ‘Our overall vision for the Shell Centre site is for it to be a permeable, well-designed mixed-use development that will complement its surroundings.
‘The draft masterplan has already drawn on the views of around a thousand people, and we look forward to receiving further feedback as this important dialogue continues.’
