The proposed development to provide one basement level, ground floor plus 10 storeys above, four floors will be constructed on top of the existing building, taking the effective roof level from the 7th to 11th floors.
This will provide retail and offices and associated roof top plant, terraces, reconfigured servicing, ancillary cycle parking and other associated works. To include infill of the existing colonnade on London Wall and retention of the façade along Copthall Avenue will be retained within the development and incorporated into the proposed façade.
Proposals include the reuse of existing foundations to support the additional loads associated with the refurbishment works and additional floor storeys. Existing foundations will be supplemented with new piles as required.
