Case study: London Wall Place
This development is part of a vanguard of new commercial schemes with public realm at their heart. The 2-acre campus includes a new 1-acre public park – the largest in the City of London since the post-war Barbican estate – that has become a new destination in the City. It comprises a series of multi-level pocket gardens and 350m of reimagined pedestrian ‘highwalks’ threading through and beyond the site.
The buildings, clad in elegant bands of concrete and dark blue ceramic, offer over 500,000ft2 of premium office space and over 35,000ft2 of roof terraces.
1 London Wall Place is now home to asset management firm Schroders, while 2 London Wall Place is multi-let. At full capacity, the scheme will host 5,000 employees and over 1,000 visitors a day.
