Images released of future City skyline
The City of London Corporation has released updated images visualising how the Square Mile’s skyline will look by the mid 2020s.
The new images capture all major developments, which the City Corporation’s Planning and Transportation Committee has resolved to approve over the past 12 months, including 50 Fenchurch Street, 55 Gracechurch Street, 60 Aldgate High Street, 70 Gracechurch Street and 2-3 Finsbury Avenue.
The majority of these tall steel-framed buildings fall within the ‘City Cluster’ area, located in the eastern corner of the Square Mile, which is already home to some of the capital’s most iconic skyscrapers.
Chair of the Planning and Transportation Committee at the City of London Corporation, Alastair Moss, said: “These new CGI images clearly illustrate that the City office is here to stay, and the future of the Square Mile remains bright.
“The support shown from developers and investors who remain committed to providing world-leading office space in the City of London has been phenomenal. These developers have embraced trends – such as flexible workspace, world-class additions to the public realm and including an array of wellness practices such as greening – to ensure office buildings in the City remain fit for the future.
“As we look towards the recovery from the pandemic, our planning pipeline is extremely busy with the anticipation of a swift return to the City as the leading place for business in a world-class environment.
“We have every confidence in a thriving and sustainable Square Mile, and these new images give a glimpse into the next chapter of the City of London.”
