A new office block is in the planning for King William Street, north of the London Bridge. The designs and plans have been recommended by Chief Planning Officer, Peter Rees.
Mr Rees has voiced his approval of ‘the strategic objective’ of the building, which would be built over the site of a current building that would be demolished to make way for the regeneration.
Owners Topland will see current tenants BlackRock move out after the end of their lease and are hoping to take down the 230,000 sq.ft. building – complete with ground floor public house – to replace it with a new 10 storey office block designed by John Robertson Architects.
Mr Rees has commended the design of the building – which will go, along with plans, to committee next week – for fitting well with “the character of the area”.
