Stanhope boosts sustainability with amended City tower plans

25th April 2024

UK developer Stanhope is boosting the sustainability of its development at 70 Gracechurch Street in the City of London with new plans.

The rejigged project will reuse some of the existing 10 storey building on site, in line with new City plans to prioritise retrofitting and reuse of existing buildings.

Originally, Stanhope planned to demolish the existing building (pictured above) to make way for a 33-storey tower.

Stanhope senior development director Nick Jarman told Building magazine: “Our development team have reimagined the plans for this prominent and brilliantly located site within the City of London, with a focus on sustainability and the reuse and retention of substantial elements of the existing building.”
