Work starts on 8 Bishopsgate

Last week, we broke ground at the site for 8 Bishopsgate, our tall tower occupying a key site in the City of London. 

When complete, the corner site will house a 50-storey tower, providing 560,000 sq ft of prime office space, a public viewing gallery at its summit and ground floor retail units. Lendlease has been appointed as the construction manager on the scheme.

Oliver Tyler, WilkinsonEyre Director, said: “WilkinsonEyre are delighted that the scheme, which the practice has worked on since 2012, is now moving ahead to construction.  The distinctive building will provide an exciting addition to the eastern cluster and the City’s lineage of bold architectural design”
