Live Project

This project’s design recalls the classic North American skyscrapers of the early 20th century. The scheme is formed of vertical slices arranged around the listed building, which create a striking and considered vertical composition to complement the more curved and leaning buildings on the London skyline.

The tallest part of the building is positioned at the northern end of the site to take account of neighbouring tall buildings and steps down in height toward the River Thames and Tower of London to the south. It is also terraced at high level on the northern side of Leadenhall Street so that it remains out of sight when travelling east along Fleet Street along the ceremonial route to St Paul’s Cathedral. Ground floor entrance and retail frontages are set back to create generous pedestrian zones, wider pavements and spaces along key pedestrian routes on adjacent Leadenhall Street, Fenchurch Street, Billiter Street and Fenchurch Buildings.
