Make rejigs City tower plans

Make's latest 1 Leadenhall scheme looms over the neighbouring Leadenhall Market

Practice lops 6m off 1 Leadenhall building but boosts office space

Ken Shuttleworth’s Make Architects has submitted revised plans for its 1 Leadenhall tower in the City of London.

It won planning permission for a 36-storey scheme designed for developer Brookfield last year, and subsequently secured non-material amendments to the scheme earlier this year.

But a new planning application lodged last week with the City shrinks the building’s height by around six metres and reduces the amount of proposed retail floorspace at the same time as increasing the space allocated to office and ancillary uses. It also raises the consented public viewing gallery to the fourth floor, which Make said would offer better views of nearby grade II*-listed Leadenhall Market and Richard Rogers’ grade I-listed Lloyds Building.
