Planning permission was initially given in January 2016 for a 73-storey development at 1 Undershaft in the City of London. The site is in close proximity to several heritage assets such as St Helen’s Bishopsgate (Grade I), St Andrew Undershaft (Grade I), St Ethelburga’s Bishopsgate (Grade I) and the Lloyd’s Building (Grade I).
The development was to be 304.94m, but with an added storey it will now be 74 storeys and 309.6m tall.
Nicknamed The Trellis due to its cross hatch design, the building will offer 1.4m sq ft of floor space, mainly dedicated to office space. There will also be high-quality external spaces, public open spaces, and and public viewing gallery for the Museum of London with access for members of the public via a dedicated entrance at the lower ground floor.
Eric Parry Architects, who designed the scheme said: “The new proposals deliver a more wellbeing-led commercial space, with high-quality external spaces, public open spaces, improved sustainability and a cultural and creative offer.
“The new proposals will form a new landmark tall building on a site allocated in the City Plan for the tallest building in the cluster, offering world-class public spaces.”
