The site extends from London Bridge to Tower Bridge and is
bounded by River Thames to the north and Tooley Street to
the south and has, for the purposes of the development, been
divided into two Phases.
The Partnership developed a new outline planning scheme for
the whole development in conjunction with Michael Twigg, Brown
and Partners. This was done in close collaboration with the
London Docklands Development Corporation and was warmly welcomed
by the Royal Fine Arts Commission. This development consists
of some 1.2 million square feet of office space, together
with high technology workshops, some retail, private and public
sector housing and a public park.
Phase 1: defined the gateway to London Bridge
City with the design and construction of No.1 London Bridge
by JSBP. Other buildings including Hayes Warf and the Hospital
refurbishment and the new Cottons office building, were carried
out by Michael Twigg, Brown and Partners, and other architects.
Phase 2: was designed as the central part
of the development in the form of a plaza (next to the Crown
Courts and opposite HMS Belfast) flanked by seven storey office
building to the east and west and culminating in a 30 storey
office tower to the south. This part of the site was later
sold and subsequently redeveloped by another developer.
