Brookfield Multiplex in the City’s tallest tower team

Plans have been lodged with the Corporation of London for the Square Mile’s tallest tower at 22 Bishopsgate.

The 1.3m sq ft skyscraper will replace the ditched Pinnacle scheme and fill an obvious gap at the centre of the City’s cluster of tall buildings.

Contractor Brookfield Multiplex is part of the client consultant team for the 62-floor building and submitted the construction plan for the £500m construction job.

Under the submitted programme concrete core work will resume in March next year after the existing core stump has been removed.

Work stopped in 2012 on the previous Pinnacle building scheme with only the foundations, basements and the lift core up to level nine having been completed.

Of the existing structure, the foundations and basements will be retained, helping minimise the disruption from the new proposal, although new piles will be drilled to support the new building layout.

Construction will involve an off-site consolidated delivery centre to minimise vehicle movements to the site – reducing pollution, improving security and diminishing the number of cyclist accidents with HGVs.

Supplies to and waste from the building will be delivered to a consolidation centre outside central London and energy efficient vehicles will then make far fewer deliveries to the site outside peak pedestrian movement and rush hour times.

Developers AXA Real Estate and Lipton Rogers are behind the plans drawn up by architect PLP for the 278m building – 10m lower than the previously approved consent.

At the top of the building will be a double-height public viewing gallery, which will have dedicated lifts, be free to the public and sit alongside a two-storey public restaurant and bar.

The plans include spaces for meeting and collaboration, as well as a range of cafés, food outlets and a conference centre, complimented with amenities such as a medical centre, library, a wellness suite, and specialised sports facilities.

It will be the first building in London to adopt the new Delos WELL Building Standard.  The Delos standard is the world’s first building standard focused exclusively on human health and wellness and assesses people using the building to measure, certify and monitor features that impact health and wellbeing.

In addition to its exceptional accessibility by public transport, 22 Bishopsgate, will achieve a BREEAM Excellent sustainability certification and a 25% carbon saving compared to the previous scheme, partly due to the triple glazed ultra-efficient façade.
