Welcome to the consultation website on the detailed proposals for 99 Bishopsgate

Welcome

Brookfield Properties, as the lead development partner, are bringing forward for consultation the detailed proposals for the future of 99 Bishopsgate, London, EC2M 3XF.

Our proposals will enable the site to respond to the needs of the future city workforce, with a primary focus on wellness and sustainability.

Our plans will significantly enhance and increase the public realm around the site, improving connections to the surrounding area and Liverpool Street Station.

The scheme will also deliver a new standalone cultural centre on the redeveloped site.

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

Site Background

Site History

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

The building is also located near the site of the original London Wall, which dates back to the 3rd Century, and was characterised by a series of gates, one of which was called Bishopsgate.

Site Context

The site is located in close proximity to St Helen’s Place, Bishopsgate, New Broad Street, and Bank Conservation Areas. A number of protected views influence our proposals.

We are mindful 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, with existing planning consents for 100 Leadenhall, 1 Undershaft and 85 Gracechurch Street and the recent resolutions to grant permission for 55 Bishopsgate and 55 Old Broad Street.

We are also aware of emerging plans for the future of Liverpool Street Station, the Tower 42 Estate, 75 London Wall and 1 Undershaft.

The Existing Building

The current building has a number of significant issues, including:

No public engagement as a result of the impenetrable structure at ground level

No pedestrian routes through or around the site and restricted pavements despite being located in an area of high footfall

A dense structural grid that limits flexibility and suitability for refurbishment or retrofit

Limited access to external space – a crucial demand of modern office tenants

No cultural or educational offer contributing towards the City of London’s Destination City ambitions

Our Vision

Since the first consultation last year, our proposals have evolved to include:

A new landmark building that visually connects to its neighbours and the wider Eastern Cluster, whilst respecting protected views.

Extensive publicly accessible spaces, with new pedestrian walkways through and around the building to animate and transform Bishopsgate and Wormwood Street.

The creation of a new 6-storey standalone offering with cultural opportunities, aligned to the Corporation’s Destination City vision.

A best-in-class Grade A commercial office building which focuses on wellbeing, sustainability and circular economy principles.

A new visibly green building, enhancing biodiversity and providing extensive external amenity space.

A retained basement structure, that will reduce the embodied carbon footprint of the scheme.
