Allford Hall Monaghan Morris is working on a skyscraper in London's Shoreditch, which would replace an already approved 21-story tower designed by Make.

In 2021, Hackney Council approved Make’s proposal for a major office development bound, but the site's owner, London Stock Exchange, later sold the site to developers Edge and Mitsui Fudosan.

AHMM has since been assigned with designing a six to 21-story office building, according to a pre-application document written by Hackney Council. The building would feature angled façades and step-back from the sixth floor, with terraces at every level above, under early plans. 

Both schemes include the demolition of the existing 1962 Technico House the 1986 London Stock Exchange Building.

The tower will join several high-rises around Shoreditch, with Foster + Partners’ 50-story Principal Tower and Kohn Pedersen Fox’s 33-story One Crown Place South already been built, and Perkins & Will’s 38-story The Stage, which is nearing completion.
