Full planning consent granted for sustainable development at 75 London Wall


Planning consent has been granted for 75 London Wall with Andy Sturgeon Design responsible for the design of the public realm and roof terraces of the landmark development overseen by real estate investor Castleforge Partners and Malaysia-based engineering, property and infrastructure company Gamuda.

A key area of the development is the Prior’s Garden – an exciting new public realm area that adds to the urban fabric and links to a network of public spaces. Inspired by the medieval history of the site, where the River Walbrook once ran and passageways led through to Austin Friars House, the development includes Prior’s Court, a new passageway linking London Wall and Prior’s Garden to Great Winchester Street.

Prior’s Garden will be a flexible destination space that includes seating and planting. As well as being a pleasant green area for relaxation and social gathering, Prior’s Garden will be an easily accessible arts and entertainment space for performances, workshops and rehearsals. It will also offer a link to other cultural venues close by in the City. Planting in this area will help create connections to other nearby green spaces and bring people closer to nature.


Within the building, there are three new roof terraces as well as vertical planting and biodiverse green roofs. Our biophilic approach will use planting to help create protected spaces, sheltered from the wind and sun and offering enhanced views across the city skyline. Raised planters will be filled with a rich mix of planting including multi-stem trees and wildflower meadows.

The new development will be a sustainable, best in class office space designed to optimize the experience of occupiers, visitors and pedestrians, allowing them to enjoy outdoor living and bringing them the benefits of nature.


The development has been rated BREEAM ’outstanding’, the UGF score achieved was well beyond the basic requirement of City of London planning policy. The development proposals will result in a net gain of 1.09 habitat units which equates to a 3026.84% net gain. This far exceeds Biodiversity Net Gain requirements which state a target of 10% net gain in biodiversity.
