St Alphage House Replacement Surfaces

Property company Hammerson PLC has had a planning application filed to redevelop the St Alphage House site in the City of London that comes from the pens of Make.

The current site is occupied by St Alphage House, the last remaining International style tower block on London Wall from the 1955 masterplan to have its original cladding still intact, but of limited historical value when compared to 140 London Wall.

Penned by Maurice Saunders Associates it also takes into account a massive deck level with under utilised and neglected public spaces that could have been so much more with some investment.

Replacing it will be two buildings known collectively as London Wall Place. The first of these is a 13-storey building which will stand next to Moorhouse is named 121 London Wall. It has been designed as a collection of interlocking vertical slabs that respond to the roughly triangular nature of the site by cantilevering out above the pavement, along London Wall. Topping it will be a selection of roof gardens.

It will contain 28,865 square metres of office space aimed at the multi-let market with the floor sizes peaking at 4,125 square metres for levels two and three suitable for trading floors, before reducing to 1,003 square metres on level 12.

On the western part of the site near Grimshaw's 125 London Wall will be a second building, 123 London Wall, a more slender and less sprawling building which will have 16 storeys, 18,116 square metres of space, and rise to a height of 71 metres.

The site was previously the location that Hammerson tried to get JP Morgan's get their headquarters approved on without luck in 2008.
