Foggo Associates reveals neighbour for Foster's Gherkin

Foggo Associates has unveiled this 90m-tall office scheme close to Foster + Partners’ Swiss Re building in St Mary Axe, City of London.

The 39,000m2 scheme for developer Targetfollow has been likened to a baby version of Foster's 180m-high Stirling Prize-winning 'Gherkin'.

The planning consultant for the project, DP9, claims that the design has 'evolved' following consultation with ‘officers from the City of London Corporation, CABE and English Heritage'.

Two existing office buildings will be demolished to make way for the development, which DP9 insists will not have any ‘detrimental effect on protected views’.

Full details of the scheme can be found at
