One Bishopsgate Plaza
Creating the only mixed-use tower in the City of London
One Bishopsgate Plaza is an ambitious new 43-storey development in the City cluster. It will combine London’s first Pan Pacific Hotel alongside private apartments, a new public plaza edged by a listed building, numerous retail and restaurants, and a triple height subterranean ballroom.
Working in collaboration with UOL / Pan Pacific and an architectural team including PLP Architecture, Yabu Pushelberg and MSMR, the team developed technical designs before embarking on 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 has 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 enable the building to grow over one floor per week.
Despite One Bishopsgate Plaza still being in development, it has already received awards for its pioneering approach to creating a modern skyscraper. 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.
Set for completion in 2020, it will provide a range of lifestyle and amenities previously unseen in the City.
