CTBUH Chapter Event
Jointly hosted by the CTBUH Executive and Future Leader Committee's, join us for a tour of 8 Bishopsgate and a new view of the City.
Recently developed by Mitsubishi Real Estate and Stanhope, 8 Bishopsgate provides an exciting opportunity to visit the latest contribution to the City of London’s cluster of tall buildings. Designed by WilkinsonEyre and engineered by Arup, the 50-story office-led tower provides flexible retail space at the lower levels and extensive amenities for tenants throughout the building.
The overall form of the tower has been informed by several factors, including the context of the City cluster and protected local views from Fleet Street of St. Paul’s dome. A stepped profile satisfies these requirements and breaks down the overall scale and mass of the building into a legible form. The design features generous roof terraces and a publicly accessible viewing gallery on the top floor.
The building includes high sustainability/low energy initiatives in its construction and operation and has achieved a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating. 8 Bishopsgate is understood to be the most sustainable speculative tall commercial scheme in the UK.
Please meet at the front of the building. The tour will include a trip to the 50th floor so anyone with vertigo should consider if this tour is for them.
The building is DDA compliant and step free from street to the office floors.
