Multiplex to build latest City of London high-rise office scheme

Posted on by in Weekly News

AXA IM Alts has appointed Multiplex to construct its 60,386m2 Fifty Fenchurch Street development in the City of London.

The 36-storey tower is expected to be one of the lowest carbon and most biodiverse high-rise buildings in the UK.

The project will deliver landscaped gardens at ground and level 10, alongside more than 40 terraces that will bring over 70 different species of plant life to the site.

According to the developer, the building will integrate nature with smart technology and purposeful design to create a future focussed structure.

It will also include the retention of the Medieval tower of All Hallows Staining and Lambe’s Chapel Crypt, which will form part of the extensive public realm being built alongside a new subterranean Livery Hall for The Clothworkers’ Company.

Targeting a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating and net zero in operation, the building will offer a high specification, flexible floorplates coupled with state-of-the-art technology and amenities, presenting the latest features aimed at enhancing occupier health and enjoyment.

Rob Samuel, UK Head of Development at AXA IM Alts, said: “Commencing construction with Multiplex marks a significant milestone in the realisation of what we believe is a one-of-a-kind development in the City of London.

“In addition to helping satisfy the significant demand for the first class and sustainable office accommodation that is a must have for occupiers, Fifty Fenchurch will bring extensive urban greening and landscaped gardens to the Square Mile.”
