AXA Investment Managers - Real Assets, acting on behalf of a consortium of international investors, together with its development partner Lipton Rogers Developments, suggest the new concept responds directly to the shifting and evolving needs of people’s working lives, offering a new approach to office design.
The 62-storey tower, designed by PLP Architecture’s Karen Cook, will contain a fresh food market, innovation hub, gym, wellbeing retreat, curated ‘art walk’, business club and cycle hub, as well as London’s highest, free, public viewing gallery.
It will provide more than 100,000 sq. ft of integrated amenity and social spaces, creating healthy workplaces for 12,000 people. There are also plans to include a dedicated space to support start-ups and young entrepreneurs.
Perhaps most notably, the tower’s fitness hub will include London’s first climbing window. Situated 125 m above the ground and installed on the inner face of the building’s external wall, the experience of climbing while enjoying spectacular views of the city is likely to be a popular draw.
