Plans go in for green revamp of Aldgate site

Grant Prior 1 year ago

Investor Patrizia has submitted plans to revamp two buildings at 30 Minories in the City of London.

The current main 16-storey tower will be replaced with 17,314m2 of office space on the upper levels and a range of flexible retail, leisure and employment uses on ground and lower ground floor levels.

The zero carbon design will include terraces on each floor accessible for the office occupiers with ‘English woodland’ landscaping inspired by landscape architect, Kim Wilkie.

The six-storey Writers House building will be refurbished to provide community floorspace at ground and lower ground level, with the upper levels leased at affordable rents to local enterprises.

Public walkways around the site will be enlivened with a small pocket-park, a new courtyard, bicycle parking and the creation of a visual route through Writers House which connects Haydon Street to Sheppy Place and St Clare Street.

Richard Scutt, Director of Real Estate Development UK & Ireland at Patrizia, said: “30 Minories is a very exciting new office development for Patrizia and our partners, Morgan Capital and PLP Architecture. This scheme, which is the perfect fit for the local area, will provide amazing new Grade A space for occupiers, thanks to its strong ESG, wellbeing and smart connectivity credentials.

“Our vision is to regenerate this historic site into not only best-in-class office accommodation to meet occupiers’ demands for exciting new space, but a building for the entire community that has significant social and cultural value at its heart.

“Having gone through an encouraging and collaborative public consultation and speaking to many key stakeholders, we are confident that our plans will introduce a thoughtful development for local residents and play an important role in transforming this area as desired by the City of London Corporation.”

Alex Morgan, co-founder of Morgan Capital, added: “30 Minories is a transformational scheme for the Aldgate market, designed to deliver exemplary sustainability credentials, high levels of urban greening and exceptionally high-quality office accommodation with unrivalled views on the upper floors.

“The building represents a step change in the quality of the built environment in this location and is one that will stand the test of time.”
