British Land gives green light to Aldgate tower
Developer British Land has committed to Phase 2 of Aldgate Place, a 12,600m2 residential led, mixed-use scheme located on the fringe of the City of London.
The building will comprise 159 apartments, 1,765m2 of office space and 740m2 of retail and leisure space.
The design includes a comprehensive upgrade to the public realm with increased biodiversity and a focus on health and wellbeing. Located adjacent to Aldgate East underground station, and equidistant between Crossrail stations at Liverpool Street and Whitechapel, British Land said the scheme will benefit from excellent connectivity and its proximity to the City of London.
Aldgate Place will be a net-zero carbon development with embodied carbon of around 620kg CO2e per sqm and it will target a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating on the office space.
Work at Aldgate Place will start on site later this year.
