Traditionally the historic and financial heart of the capital, The City of London continues to experience ongoing regeneration. Home to some of London’s tallest and most high-profile skyscrapers, this ever-changing neighborhood offers bustling excitement alongside creative public realm projects and cultural buildings.
Our walk will explore the next set of schemes in the City cluster by top architects including PLP Architecture, Eric Parry Architects and KPF. At Bank Junction, the heart of Square Mile, we’ll discover a range of medium height mixed-use developments which are slotted into voids left by redundant Victorian and post World War II buildings. See 22 Bishopsgate, soon to be the tallest building in the City of London standing at 278m, and hear updates on major future skyscrapers including One Undershaft nicknamed ‘the Trellis’ and 100 Leadenhall Street nicknamed ‘the Diamond’.
Working with conservation restraints, projects such as Stirling Wilford’s No 1 Poultry and Foster + Partners’ Bloomberg London redefine the City’s prime economic role while emphasising the importance of public realm.
This walk will start at The City Centre, 80 Basinghall Street, EC2V 5AR. Ends at Liverpool Street Station.
