One Bishopsgate Plaza
Creating the only mixed-use tower in the City of London
One Bishopsgate Plaza is an ambitious 43-storey development in the City of London cluster. It combines London’s first Pan Pacific Hotel with 160 private branded residences above, a new public plaza edged by a listed building, numerous retail and restaurants, and a triple height subterranean ballroom.
Working in collaboration with UOL Group, Pan Pacific and an architectural team including PLP Architecture, Yabu Pushelberg and MSMR, the team developed technical designs before carrying out a build phase that negotiated several complex issues related to this unique project.
Growing at speed
To maintain the listed facades of Devonshire House, Stanhope used ‘cut and carve’ methods to retain their external appearances, while carrying an increased load and protecting the Metropolitan line tunnels below. Modular off-site building and innovative construction methods using a winching central core have been used to help reduce costs, keep the construction site safe and efficient, and enabled the building to grow over one floor per week.
One Bishopsgate Plaza has received nominations and awards for its pioneering approach to creating a contemporary mixed use development with a tall tower element. At the International Property Awards in 2017, Bishopsgate Plaza was awarded a 5 Star Winner for Best Hotel Construction and Design UK, Best Hotel Architecture London and Best Mixed-Use Architecture London.
Completed in September 2021, the development provides a range of lifestyle and amenities previously unseen in the City – and the hotel has been a top-10 fixture in Trip Advisors best hotels in London ever since.
