Millennium Bridge House
Millennium Bridge House is an office building on the bank of river Thames in London EC4.
The redevelopment of Millennium Bridge House for Angelo Gordon and Beltane Asset Management received planning consent from the City of London on Tuesday 14 July, 2020.
When complete, the scheme designed by Piercy & Co will provide 27,275m2 GIA of B1 class office space along with 2,432m2 GIA of new complementary A class uses and 2,527m2 of rooftop gardens.
Using circular economy, carbon reduction and the resource efficiency principles of reusing the existing structural frame, the project aims to achieve BREEAM Excellent and a 61% reduction in Carbon emissions over baseline Building Regulations requirements.
An innovative and energy efficient approach to heat recovery and thermal storage reduces the amount of rooftop plant required to service the building, creating an all electric solution that maximises the area available for rooftop gardens. This creates an attractive environment that encourages biodiversity, attenuates rainwater and reduces the urban heat island effect. The 2,527sqm rooftop landscape designed with Andy Sturgeon Design, includes a 375sqm freely publicly accessible terrace and 570sqm publicly accessible restaurant terrace which maximise urban greening and external amenity space with new views over the River Thames and north to St Paul’s.
The street level public realm will be improved through the addition of a series of new A class uses creating 105 linear meters of new active frontage along Paul’s Walk and Peter’s Hill. Expressed red-oxide steelwork supports the cantilever along Paul’s Walk creating a civic backdrop to the river and a sheltered area of public realm along the Thames Path, whilst evoking the memory of Sunlight Wharf; a building which once stood at the site and contained some of the last riverside cranes in the City.
Large format openable glazed windows and doors maximise natural light and connections to the River. These also make reference to the large openings of historic warehouses that allowed goods and materials to be lifted directly off the boats from the River Thames.
The building was home to Old Mutual. Old Mutual provides investment, savings, insurance and banking services to more than 17 million customers in Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe. Originating in South Africa in 1845, Old Mutual has been listed on the London and Johannesburg Stock Exchanges, among others, since 1999.
