Mitsubishi Estate in London given Approval
Posted on: 31/07/2015

Planning permission has been granted by the City of London Corporation for Mitsubishi Estate London, a 40-storey office tower.

The 71,510 sq m office-led, mixed-use tower will offer new retail space, a public access viewing gallery and a huge volume of space for new offices. The design comes from Wilkinson Eyre Architects and will consist of a series of stacked blocks that gradually get narrower towards the top to form a slender tower neck for the building.

The building has already received praise for high levels of sustainability and low energy features and exceeded the threshold for the BREEAM NC 2014 “Excellent” rating.

Managing Director and CEO of Mitsubishi Estate London, Mr Naoki Umeda said: “I would like to thank the City Corporation planning team for their assistance and efficiency in processing this application. We have really valued the open and collaborative approach from the City.

“This project is a major investment signalling Mitsubishi Estate’s confidence in the City of London as a world financial centre. We are delighted that we will now be able to deliver a striking landmark building for London that will further enhance its global appeal.”

David Camp the Chief executive of Stanhope said: “We are delighted to continue our long term association with Mitsubishi Estate. We’d like to pay tribute to everyone in the design and planning team for their role in the achievement of today’s result.”
