Resolution secured to grant planning permission for 21 Moorfields, EC1

Landsec has announced that it has secured a resolution to grant a revised planning permission for its proposed 564,000ft² development at 21 Moorfields, with architecture by WilkinsonEyre. 

In July 2017 Landsec and Deutsche Bank exchanged a pre-let agreement for the bank's new London headquarters at 21 Moorfields on a 25-year lease, conditional on achieving revised planning consent, with Deutsche Bank committing to take a minimum of 469,000ft². Landsec, Deutsche Bank and WilkinsonEyre have collaborated on the design, which will deliver a world-class headquarters for one of the largest employers in the City.

Landsec had already committed to construct the substructure, which is due to complete in March 2019 and now expects that construction will continue straight through to practical completion, anticipated in November 2021.
