WilkinsonEyre designed tower at the heart of the City submitted for planning

The WilkinsonEyre designed tower on the site of 6-8 Bishopsgate and 150 Leadenhall was submitted for planning to the City of London Corporation this week. The proposed 40-storey tower in the heart of the city will provide an office-led, mixed-use tower with flexible retail space at ground and mezzanine floor levels and a public viewing gallery at level 40.

Designed with client Mitsubishi Estate London, the 71,501m² building comprises a series of stacked blocks responding to its urban context.

The proposed building will include high sustainability and low energy features and will also exceed the threshold for the BREEAM NC 2014 “Excellent” rating.
