Mr Wren, meet Mr McAslan

St Paul’s Cathedral is about to get a new neighbour designed by John McAslan + Partners – a 10,000m2 office block on Cheapside, central London.

The scheme, for developer St Martins, which has just been submitted for planning, has been a long time coming.

The initial plans for an 8,000m2 building at the western end of Cheapside, next to Christopher Wren’s masterpiece, were first seen back in June 2006.

The commercial space will be housed over six floors above 2,000m2 of shops on the ground and lower-ground floor and will cantilever 16m out at the northern end of the development.
