Existing building near Blackfriars station dates back to 1950s

Proposals to give a 1950s office block near Blackfriars station a makeover have been submitted to City of London planners.

The scheme, called Fleet House, was built in 1950 and is currently used as office space, with a pub, St Bride’s Tavern, on the ground floor and residential space on the upper floors.


How the revamped block will look

The existing building runs across eight storeys with a neighbouring four-storey building which includes the pub.

Architect HOK has sent in the plans on behalf of developer Fleet House Development with other members of the team including cost consultant Core 5, project manager 3PM, structural engineer AKT II and M&E consultant Hoare Lea.

The redevelopment will include new building work on top of the existing building, adding more than 2,000 sq m of space.

HOK said around three-quarters of the existing building, located on New Bridge Street in the Fleet Street Conservation Area, will be retained under its designs.

Fleet House was acquired by real estate group Atenor in April and is its first project in London.
