The plans include a 139m purpose-built office block, which is an equivalent height to Guy’s Tower adjacent to the site.

- Community integration
- Hub space, 200 seat auditorium
- Fifth-floor public garden
- Routes through site / landscaped courtyard

One of the buildings on site, Keats House was originally constructed in the 1800s as a Victorian Villa, however, in the 1980s the rear of the building was removed and replaced with a concrete structure. Only the original brick and stone façade of the building remains. The developer will be cataloguing and carefully removing the existing façade piece-by-piece before reconstructing it in its new location with a new sensitive rear development, in line with the original architecture of the building.

2019 - GPE submits a planning application to materially increase the size of the existing 98,000 sq ft building to 372,500 sq ft. Expected determination in late 2020.
