City planners urged to approve 12-storey development despite impact on Monument views
Eric Parry Architects-designed proposals for a new Thameside office block near London Bridge are set to win approval, even though the scheme obscures part of the river view from Christopher Wren’s grade I-listed Monument.
Parry’s proposals for Seal House, next to the grade II* Fishmongers’ Hall, would replace a seven-storey 1970s block by William Holford & Partners with a new 12-storey block with a roof terrace. The current building is linked to Fishmongers’ Hall, and the new scheme would provide a replacement link.
Parry’s Seal House proposals, drawn up for Shard developer Sellar Property Group, replaces previous proposals for Sellar by David Chipperfield Architects. Chipperfield won planning permission for an 11-storey scheme for the site in 2009, tweaked because of an earlier knock-back because of the impact on views.
