50 Fenchurch Street will be the first building of this scale to incorporate extensive vertical landscaping

Designed by architect Eric Parry, the building will give the impression of a hanging garden across the facade, pioneering extensive urban greening in the City.

The new 60,0000 sq m building at 50 Fenchurch Street for The Clothworkers’ Company includes a replacement Livery Hall, a public roof garden and significant new public realm situated around a restored Grade I church tower.

Capital Real Estate Partners is acting as development manager for the Livery Company scheme.

At Level 10 there will be a public viewing terrace with double-height winter garden.

The innovative external design will significantly enhance the environmental performance of the new building’s façade.

The façade includes bespoke ceramic cladding at ground, a seamless glazed podium level and a crafted glass detail on the upper levels.

Architect Eric Parry said: “The design journey of this urban proposition has been one of the most remarkable alignments between commerce, culture and the public realm that I have experienced”.

The proposed scheme will improve two listed buildings. The Grade I listed Tower of All Hallows Staining will be set within a new street level public realm.  The Grade II Lambe’s Chapel Crypt will become publicly accessible.
