Designed for client Mitsubishi Estate London and being delivered by Stanhope, on the corner of two of the most prominent streets in London, the 50-storey scheme is conceived as a series of stacked blocks in response to its urban context, with consideration of view corridors and an adjacent conservation area. The top three storeys are arranged as a pavilion incorporating the viewing/event space as well as plant rooms. The adoption of a raft foundation for low and mid-rise elements saved a further 3000 m3 of concrete, equating to 300 tonnes of CO2. A double skin façade mediates between maximum daylighting, occupier controlled shading and passive stack ventilation. The scheme is due to complete in 2023.
