Foster submits plans for Whitechapel offices

101 Whitechapel High Street by Foster and Partners

Corner facade to be retained with glass blocks rising above

Foster & Partners has submitted plans for a stepped 20-storey office block on an extended corner site opposite Aldgate East Tube station in Whitechapel.

The 49,000sq m project involves a land swap with a primary school on one edge of the site and the demolition of several small commercial buildings.

Haverstock has been appointed to work on the school elements which include moving its playground to the centre of the site and, potentially, a new annexe.
