Green light for Make's Gotham City

Planning permission has been granted for the Make Architects-designed 40 Leadenhall Street development in London for Henderson Global Investors. The scheme is destined to rise in the core of the City’s Eastern Cluster, an area already populated with tall buildings. An earlier article on the project can be found here.

‘Gotham City’ - as the scheme has been nicknamed - comprises a number of buildings that vary in height between 7 and 34 storeys, clustered around a Grade II listed building at 19-21 Billiter Street. The towers are vertical in composition to contrast with the numerous curved buildings already in place on the London skyline.

Geoff Harris, Director of Property Development at Henderson Global Investors said: “The completed scheme will fit in with the rich urban character of streets and spaces of EC3 with tall towers and lower rise blocks, primary thoroughfares, hidden alleyways and discreet public spaces. The shifting vertical planes of the scheme rise to complement the cluster of tall buildings on the skyline and sensitively terrace down in southern views from and across the River Thames to respect local and strategic views.”
