Gensler has won planning permission for its controversial 49,597m 2office scheme for the former Greater London Council island block on the south side of Westminster Bridge - if mayor Ken Livingstone chooses not to intervene. The scheme, which includes an eightstorey radial building, 12-storey tower and landscaped pedestrian area for Frogmore Developments, came in for criticism from the Twentieth Century Society but passed its planning committee meeting with Lambeth council late last month.

The architect lowered the scheme so it will not be visible from Westminster Bridge or the Palace of Westminster World Heritage site.
