Developers Stanhope PLC and Mitsubishi Estate London have reached the highest point of construction at 8 Bishopsgate.
The 50-storey tower will provide 560,000 sq ft of prime office space and 75,000 sq ft of amenity space, including the Think Tank auditorium and a communal deli, lounge and terrace on level 26, with a public viewing gallery at the top.
8 Bishopsgate is the sixth collaboration between Stanhope and Mitsubishi Estate London, who have been working together for the past 21 years on projects such as Warwick Court, Bow Bells House and the original Paternoster Square.
The building, which broke ground in March 2019, is scheduled to be completed in early 2023.
Shinichi Kagitomi, managing director of Mitsubishi Estate London, commented: “We are pleased to have reached this important milestone and to have taken a major step forward towards completion. 8 Bishopsgate is a truly market-defining scheme and will transform expectations for top tier office environments. Having already landed our first deal with law firm, HFW, we currently have further positive discussions underway and now look forward to marketing the scheme in earnest.”
Tony Wall, Director of Construction at Stanhope added: “This is a significant moment in the construction of this pioneering City tower, which has continually interrogated and pushed the boundaries of what is possible in our industry. From the project’s outset, we challenged ourselves and our partners to think of new ways to design better, greener and smarter. The result is a building which blazes a trail for tall buildings in the capital and which sets a benchmark for occupier expectations of the post-pandemic workplace.”
