Developer Land Securities has secured planning permission for its 93,000 m2 One New Change office and retail unit next to St Paul's in the City of London.

The eight-storey building, designed by Parisian architect Jean Nouvel, will include a long atrium with views of St Paul's. Work to demolish the existing building will begin this summer. Steve McGuckin, Land Securities development director, said: "This is a gateway project for quality foreign architects doing work in the City."
