Heron architect poised for green light on City tower

David Walker Architects' proposals for the redevelopment of Tenter House in the City of London

David Walker’s Moorfields redevelopment will double space of 1960s building

David Walker Architects’ proposals to redevelop a 1960s office building in the City of London with a much taller steel-and-glass structure are set to be approved next week.

The practice’s scheme, drawn up for site freeholder Metropolitan Properites, would replace 11-storey Tenter House, on Moorfields, with an 18-storey structure that almost doubles the existing building’s floorspace.

It would be one block from the architect’s 112m The Heron, the largest residential tower built in the City for 30 years when it was completed in 2013.
