New City of London tower drawn up by Make

  • 2 Comments

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.

  • What tower? Or, more accurately, which tower.? Another piece of visual trickery designed by Brookfield to hide more than it reveals.

    Agreed, as is the 3-day 'consultation' (why was this not on the daily email from the AJ?) and not much more help from the 'map' which without labels is pointless.
