The City of London Corporation has approved plans for the 24-storey office-led development at 115-123 Houndsditch .

The new building designed by architects AHMM offers more than 56,500m2 of office space, flexible retail/café space, community space, basement cycle parking and new public realm.

Chair of the City Corporation’s Planning and Transportation Committee, Alastair Moss, commented: “115-123 Houndsditch is the seventh office-led tall building scheme to secure planning permission in the Square Mile this calendar year.

“This is not only an unprecedented number of major developments to come for decision, but it also clearly illustrates the enduring strength of the office market in the City of London and unwavering confidence from developers.

“With ambitious sustainability credentials, a focus on occupier well-being and offering in-demand flexible office floorspace for all variety of business, this development on Houndsditch will be an exemplar of the future of the Square Mile.”

Development Director at Brockton Everlast, Richard Berry, added: “We designed a new building of the highest architectural quality to provide a twenty first century workplace, putting health, wellness and sustainability first.

“By reimagining the entire experience to introduce new trees, expanded pavements, inclusive retail and community spaces that spill out to redefine and animate Cutler Street, we can help revitalise this unique pocket of the City.

“This scheme has been designed from the start with a relentless focus on carbon reduction. We tasked the architects to create an exceptional and sustainable design – one that delivers a vastly improved operational carbon footprint as part of our goal to future-proof the building for the next generation of net-zero occupiers.

“We are therefore delighted by today’s decision by the City of London Corporation’s Planning & Transportation Committee, which will help to achieve the transformative step-change to the area in line with the City Corporation’s exciting ambitions.”

This is the seventh tall building to be approved this year. The other buildings are:
