Plans approved for Landsec’s latest City office scheme

Posted on by in News

The City of London Corporation Planning Applications Sub-Committee has approved a new office scheme at 1 Little New Street.

To be developed by Landsec, and designed by lead architect Apt, the 20-storey scheme will deliver over 57,000m2 of Grade A office space to accommodate around 3,000 employees.

The Hill House proposals are said to contribute to the continued resurgence of the Fleet Street area, providing a unique design with cascading stepped green landscaped terraces.

Along with the much-needed new office space, the development will incorporate the existing Shoe Lane library, alongside flexible and affordable workplaces. In addition, there will be a top floor amenity space and a rooftop suitable for community events, offering outstanding views of the City.

Coupled with the building’s green terraces, are plans to plant 28 new trees along adjacent streets and a larger public realm space, altogether delivering a 500% biodiversity net gain for the area.

Deputy Chairman of the City of London Corporation’s Planning and Transportation Committee, Graham Packham, said: “Through the City Corporation’s Destination City programme, together with developments like Hill House, we are creating a unique and diverse offer for local workers, residents and visitors, to make the Square Mile a world-leading destination for all to enjoy.”
