22 Bishopsgate

London, UK

PLP Architecture has been appointed by AXA Real Estate, acting on behalf of clients, and Lipton Rogers Developments, to design 22 Bishopsgate, a new office tower at the heart of the City of London.

The design will form part of the City of London’s cluster of tall buildings. Since the design of The Pinnacle on the site, much has changed in the context of the City; a number of towers, notably the adjacent Leadenhall Building, have been completed. The new design will acknowledge the tower’s position at the centre of this cluster and define the massing to enhance townscape views.

The brief for the development places emphasis on contributing more than an office building: and integrates social amenity spaces throughout the building shared by tenants; a restaurant and bar occupying the upper levels; a public viewing gallery offering free entry; and art enriching the public realm experience.

The project received full planning permission from the City of London Corporation on June 16th, 2016.
