Green light for City projects

  • Comment
These two major projects in the City of London were given the green light by the Corporation of London on Tuesday.

The smaller of the pair is this 19-storey office development (above) by architect Sheppard Robson near Aldgate Tube station. The 32,071m 2landmark building - bound by Mitre Square and Creechurch Place - features three different types of glazing and comprises a single element which cascades into three lower sections.

Speaking about the scheme, a spokesman said: 'The building responds to the tight planning constraints of the area because it is located next to Sir John Cass Foundation School, as well as offices and residential developments.

'The stepping down on the second wing responds to the daylight issues of the surrounding buildings.'

In addition, SOM's Broadgate Tower, a 178m-tall building located at 201 Bishopsgate, was also given the go-ahead. The scheme (below), which was put together by SOM's Chicago office, totals 110,000m 2, including the 35-storey tower and an adjacent 13-storey building.
