Welcome to the consultation website on the emerging ideas for 99 Bishopsgate

Welcome

Brookfield Properties are developing emerging plans for the future of 99 Bishopsgate, London, EC2M 3XF.

Brookfield Properties have a strong track record of delivering best-in-class, highly sustainable buildings both in the City of London and globally. We have assembled an expert professional team to begin exploring opportunities for the future of 99 Bishopsgate that will allow it to respond to the needs and demands of the future city workforce, with a particular focus on wellness and sustainability.

The team have also been tasked with developing a future for the site that better connects it to the surrounding area and the Elizabeth Line connection to Liverpool Street Station.

Whilst at an early stage, our emerging vision for the site will see a new landmark high rise commercial building within the Eastern Cluster, an area which is designated for tall building within the London Plan.

The team are committed to engaging early with the local community and we would welcome the opportunity to hear your feedback on the existing building and on our emerging vision for the future of the site. Find out more about how you can get involved in the Have your Say section.

Site Background

The existing building was designed by GMW Architects and completed in 1976. In 1993, the building was extensively damaged by an IRA bomb.

It is not within a conservation area but sits in close proximity to St Helen’s Place, Bishopsgate, New Broad Street, and Bank Conservation Areas. A number of protected views of London will influence any redevelopment of the site.

We are also mindful of a number of key heritage assets in the immediate vicinity; St Ethelburga’s Bishopsgate (Grade I) and St Botolph-without-Bishopsgate (Grade II*).

The area is currently undergoing extensive change, recently completed developments at 8, 22 and 100 Bishopsgate, existing consents for 100 Leadenhall, 1 Undershaft and 85 Gracechurch Street and the recent resolution to grant consent for 55 Bishopsgate.

We are aware of emerging plans for the future of Liverpool Street Station, the Tower 42 Estate, 55 Old Broad Street, Winchester House and 1 Undershaft – all of which seek to contribute to enhanced pedestrian permeability in and around the area in line with the aspirations of the City of London Corporation.

99 Bishopsgate from Wormwood Street

 

 

The Existing Building

The existing building at 99 Bishopsgate does not make use of the site’s full potential due to a number of reasons. These reasons include:

The existing building does not maximise the potential usage of the site

The existing building presents a solid barrier around the site, especially on Wormwood Street. There is very little active frontage onto external pavements.

There are no pedestrian routes through or around the site, despite being located in a high footfall area

The dense structural grid impacts on the building's versatility

Existing tenants have limited access to external space

There is currently no cultural or educational offer contributing towards the City of London’s Destination City ambitions

Our Vision

Our emerging vision for the future of the site will see a new landmark high rise commercial building within the Eastern Cluster, an area designated for tall buildings within the London Plan. The proposals will seek to respect protected views, have extensive vertical greening which will be visible from street level, and provide a new cultural offer.

Whilst at an early stage, our emerging vision for the future of the site would see:

A new landmark building which which makes full use of site through densification whilst respecting protected views

Extensive new animated public realm at ground floor, creating new wayfinding routes through and around the site connecting to other public realm improvements coming forward in the area

A new public offer in a standalone building, in line with the City’s Destination City Vision, helping to animate the new public realm and drawing visitors into the area

A greater provision and variety of commercial and retail space in support of the London Plan

A new visibly green building, enhancing the biodiversity of the site

A new flexible building that is sustainably best-in-class
