The detailed plans for 30 Old Bailey and 60 Ludgate Hill seek permission for 389,000 sq ft of offices and shops that will replace two outdated properties from the 1960’s.
The submission follows a review of Land Securities original plans in 2007 for a single landmark building designed by architect Make. The new plan is to build two separate buildings to better meet occupier requirements and optimise use of space.
Land Securities’ plans also include private roof terraces and green roofs which overlook Old Bailey, Ludgate Hill, St Paul’s Cathedral and the River Thames whilst protecting the views and vistas of St Paul’s.
Colette O’Shea, development director, London Portfolio of Land Securities, said: “The proposed scheme at 30 Old Bailey and 60 Ludgate Hill will dramatically enhance the environment for the thousands of people who work and visit in this part of the City.
“The plans will bring contemporary office space to the London market where there is a forecast shortage of supply, and will deliver new high quality retail and leisure facilities to the City.
“It will also enhance the immediate vicinity and build on the success of One New Change in regenerating the area.”
The site has been masterplanned by Fletcher Priest in collaboration with Sauerbruch Hutton. 60 Ludgate Hill has been designed by Fletcher Priest; 30 Old Bailey has been designed by Sauerbruch Hutton.
