Plans have been withdrawn for the extensive Heron Plaza project after developers Heron International announced that it is preparing to submit extended proposals for the scheme.
Heron International has revealed that it wants to revise plans for the height of the Heron Plaza building, extending it to 149 metres. The expansion is being made to incorporate last month’s Heads of Terms signing with the luxury Four Seasons Hotel & Resorts chain.
However the new proposals have been met with concern from the English Heritage who claim that the new building height will interfere with views of the Tower of London.
The Heron Plaza building will be constructed alongside the project’s centrepiece, the Kohn Pederson Fox-designed Heron Tower building. The neighbouring Heron Tower skyscraper began construction in 2008 and, once completed, will measure in at an astounding 202 metres, incorporating 41 storeys and providing world class office space. The Heron Plaza development also includes a range of public spaces including squares and green areas and offers a sought-after EC2 business address, located in the Bishopsgate area.
The revised Heron Plaza building plans are due to be submitted during September 2009.
