Assael debuts City office tower proposals

Assael Architecture's proposals for 33 Creechurch Lane in the City of London

Slim 21-storey block would tower above grade I synagogue

Assael Architecture has revealed proposals for a 21-storey City tower that would replace a low-rise 1970s office development east of Foster & Partners’ Gherkin.

The practice’s proposals for 33 Creechurch Lane were lodged with City of London planners last year but have only just been validated by the authority. They would be Assael’s tallest commercial building to date.

According to documents supporting the proposals, the scheme – created for developer Merchant Land – would deliver around 10,000sq m of new space, including a ground-floor shop on the 0.05ha site.
