Joint developer Manford Properties and Great Elm Assets is planning to knock down existing 7 and 9-storey 1970s offices to make way for the big new scheme rising to 27 storeys.
It will be located at 20 Ropemaker Street, 101-117 Finsbury Pavement near to City Point, a taller 35-storey building in Finsbury.
Designed by architect Make, its characteristic stepped design for the office complex consists of four linked vertical blocks, topping out at 129m with the tallest part ornamented with a clock.
The building will include three basement levels for retail, cycle parking and changing facilities.
London’s Islington Council will give its verdict on the scheme in several weeks.
