Investment bank submits plans for nine-floor City of London office block

Holborn Viaduct

Investment bank Goldman Sachs has submitted plans for a 1.2m sq ft headquarters building in the City of London.

The nine-floor KPF-designed scheme near Holborn Viaduct will replace the existing buildings on the site – the 1960s concrete Fleet Building and Plumtree Court.

Planning consultant DB9 submitted an application on behalf of Goldman Sachs to the City of London Corporation on Christmas Eve.

The development site is on the corner of Shoe Lane and Farringdon Street.

The planning application says URS acted as environmental consultant, WSP as energy consultant and Steer Davies Gleave as transport consultant.

As Building reported last July, consultant EC Harris and engineer WSP have been appointed to work on plans the project.
