The new office building will vary in height between 7 and 34 office storeys, with two additional basement levels, a roof level plant, (total height 170m AOD) and flexible retail/café and restaurant uses at ground floor level. The total size of the building is 910,000 sq ft NIA, split between 890,000 sq ft office and c. 20,000 sq ft retail.
The building is located in the City of London’s established and dynamic insurance district of EC3 and within the Eastern Cluster of tall buildings. The site is very well served with public transport surrounded by various bus routes, underground and overground stations. A grade II listed building at 19-21 Billiter Street, built in 1865, will be restored and integrated in the proposed scheme. It is estimated that 390 FTE construction jobs will be created on the site and approximately 7,000 people are expected to work in the building when complete.
