Designs and plans for new London office space for Topland have been given a boost, having gained a positive response from the city of London’s chief planning officer, according to an article published Construction Enquirer.
Topland is planning to demolish 33 King William Street, situated just north of London Bridge, once the current tenant lease, held by investment firm BlackRock, expires.
Topland will replace it with a new building, whilst BlackRock is set to move to new headquarters at the Drapers Gardens building – which measures 292,500 sq ft.
Designed by John Robertson Architects, theÂ King William Street regeneration plans – if approved – will provide a new ten-storey office block.
Chief planning officer, Peter Rees, spoke positively about the “strategic objective of promoting the City as the leading international financial and business centre”. He also commended the design of the proposed property, adding that it would sit well with “the character of the area.”
Both the design and plans are set to go to the committee this week.
