Rebuilding a modern square in the shadow of St Paul’s Cathedral
Paternoster Square involved the redevelopment of over 4 office buildings, retail outlets and restaurants around a new public square and enhanced the distinctive architecture to bridge ancient and modern London, as well as giving a new home to the London Stock Exchange.
Stanhope saw the project design and build phases through numerous complex challenges including congestion, challenging conditions below ground, complicated ownership patterns, and legal constraints imposed by the proximity St Paul’s Cathedral.
Paternoster Square was commended at the London Planning Awards as Best Built Project five years on in 2009.
Partners on Paternoster Square included MacCormac Jamieson Prichard, Allies and Morrison, Eric Parry with Sheppard Robson and Whitefield Partners.
