Plans for a new 37-storey office tower close to the Cheesegrater in the City of London have been revealed by Make
The project at 1 Leadenhall is the latest high-rise to emerge in the growing Eastern Cluster and, if approved, will sit opposite WilkinsonEyre’s three-block Prussian Blue skyscraper scheme for developer Mitsubishi Estate London (see Wilkinson Eyre’s 40-storey City tower scheme set for go-ahead).
Replacing the 1988 GMW-designed Leadenhall Court, Make’s proposals will create office space for 4,000 people as well as shops along Leadenhall and Gracechurch streets.

According to the tower’s developer Brookfield, ’instead of having a viewing platform at the top of the tower 1 Leadenhall features a free public terrace overlooking the historic roof of Leadenhall Markets, offering visitors views of the Victorian ironworks and views south’.
A public exhibition showcasing the initial designs for the scheme will run until Wednesday (22 June) at St Ethelberga’s Church, 78 Bishopsgate, London EC2N 4AG.
