Neighbour of doomed Mondial House also faces wrecking ball

  • Comment
Foggo Associates has submitted this London riverside proposal for planning permission.

The application comes only weeks after Fletcher Priest's designs for the redevelopment of the adjacent Mondial House won the green light.

Foggo's project, which will face Corporation of London planners tomorrow, has been recommended for approval by planning officers.

The architect claimed that a comprehensive redevelopment of the site would provide the opportunity to address the 'functional, architectural, environmental and townscape shortcomings of the existing buildings'.

'Riverbank House' would replace an existing 10-storey building known as Ebbgate House, which was completed in 1984 by Holford Associates and is described in Pevsner as 'dull'.

The proposed replacement would include 36,000m 2of office space.

Designs for each floor's exterior feature extensive greenery, to create what the architect describes as 'green walls', which complement the building's 'orthogonal' cladding.
