The proposed redevelopment of 33 King William Street would see the current home of investor BlackRock demolished and turned into a 10-storey building.
Mulitmillionaire brothers Eddie and Sol Zakay, who own Topland, commissioned Greycoat CORE to work on the development plans last year, which have been designed by John Robertson Architects.
Yesterday, the City of London’s chief planning officer Peter Rees recommended the island site scheme is approved before going to a planning committee meeting next week.
Rees said the plans supported “the strategic objective of promoting the City as the leading international financial and business centre” and “fitted with the character of the area.”
BlackRock is to move to its headquarter to Evans Randall’s 292,500 sq ft Drapers Gardens building once its lease expires.
