AHMM’s Broadgate plans set to get go-ahead

AHMM's proposals for 1-2 Broadgate

City planners recommend approval for redevelopment of 1980s landmark

Plans to tear down the southern-most element of London’s Broadgate Centre for replacement with a new AHMM-designed 14-storey scheme are being backed by City planners.

Developer British Land last year secured a five-year certificate of immunity from listing for the 1980s 1-2 Broadgate blocks, designed by an Arup team led by Peter Foggo. It effectively extended an earlier certificate issued in 2013 and was strongly opposed by conservationists at the Twentieth Century Society.

AHMM’s scheme would deliver 74,178sq m of new floorspace, almost 45,000sq m of which would be new offices, with 21,350sq m of retail, restaurant and leisure space earmarked for its lower floors. The proposals also feature roof gardens and terraces.
