WilkinsonEyre submits revised planning application for City tower

WilkinsonEyre has submitted a revised planning application for the already consented 6-8 Bishopsgate/150 Leadenhall Street, London, UK for client Mitsubishi Estate London and development partner Stanhope Plc.

The scheme, which will sit at the corner of Leadenhall Street and Bishopsgate within the City of London’s Eastern Cluster of tall buildings, has been revised following the evolution of the Cluster, and in particular the recent approvals for 1 Undershaft, 22 Bishopsgate and 1 Leadenhall Court.

The stepped form of the earlier consented scheme, also known as Prussian Blue, is retained but modified to retain a similar proportional relationship between the different blocks. The new proposal, based on the same architectural concept, increases the height of the building by 10 storeys to 50 storeys, from 185m AOD to 220m AOD and increases lettable office space from 41,806m² to 52,954m².

A rooftop pavilion at level 50 will provide public access to a viewing gallery from a ground floor entrance.
