City of London proposal will run across 36 storeys
Proposals by 1 Undershaft architect Eric Parry for a 36-storey office building with a living green wall running all the way up it will go into City of London planners next month.
The scheme at 50 Fenchurch Street is set to be the new home of 500-year-old City livery company, the Clothworkers’ Company.
It will include a replacement underground Livery Hall for the company along with a new office building, public roof garden and winter garden as well as a new public space centred around a restored Grade I church tower at its base.
The new scheme would also include shops at the base, with the remaining floors made up of office space.
The development, just under 150m tall, will provide over 3,0002m of new public space, with half of it on the ground floor.
The double-height winter garden will be located on the 10th floor and will be accessed by the public all year round.
The Grade I tower, the Tower of All Hallows Staining, which was built around 1320, and the nearby Grade II Lambe’s Chapel Crypt, which dates from 1200, will both be restored under the plans.
The designs were sent out to public consultation last week by development manager Capital Real Estate Partners.
Others working on the scheme include engineer Arup, QS Alinea and landscape architect Bradley-Hole Schoenaich Landscape.
