Heron revised in shock bid to grow scheme

KPF has released these images of revised designs for Heron Tower in the City of London which will make the building 20 metres taller.

Developer Heron International submitted a revised planning application - adding an additional four storeys to the now 41-storey proposed landmark - to the Corporation of London late last week.

The increase in the height of the tower at 110 Bishopsgate, EC2, is made up of three office floors and a larger public restaurant and bar at the top of the building.

Heron has announced that it will build the project speculatively and, subject to the revised planning application being approved, enabling works will start in January 2006 with construction starting in 2007.

CABE has reviewed the design and is backing the new proposal.
