London: new shopping mall in City

From the Evening Standard website: A multi-million pound shopping centre and office complex is to be built in the shadow of St Paul's Cathedral.

This isn't a 'shopping mall', it's a mixed-use scheme with retail, offices and a new public square, plus a publically-accessible roofscape with panoramic views. It is designed by Jean Neuvel for a site next to St. Paul's Cathedral. We submitted it for planning last week (so it is at least 3 months away from a decision).

It's the first in a whole series of new, large development schemes that will be submitted for planning in London over the next few months, all by leading international architects, including a few like Neuvel who have yet to build anything in London.

This looks very interesting. I have known about the White City Development for sometime, which involves the construction of 2 new underground stations. That project is currently under construction. I believe this development will bring a bit more life to the Square Mile and especially around St Pauls.

This is not a highrise project...Thus, I am moving it to the 'lowrise architecture' forum, where it should go.

You sound like you have some connection to this development, is that the case, or was it a mistype.

Do you have any information on the other schemes that will be submitted?

Probably but he won't tell you.... we're still pressuring him for a DIFA preview (sulk)

Liking the new development of the city though i am usually against the idea of these big schemes...not like it will hurt the vitality of the area lol!

Still not sure about White City - I like Shepherds Bush as it is and i think this mall could kill the place but at least they get new bus and tube stations i suppose.

the city really doesn't need things to be brought inside off the street, the problem with the city is it has a dead street life after 6pm and on weekends. They need residential.

^ This is true, but improving the shopping facilities in this area, would create a far more attractive residential environment.

It's a catch 22 situation. The City needs more residents, but residents require more facilities such as shopping than The City has to offer. Build the facilities, and the people will come.

The problem of adding new residents to the Square Mile is that you bring in the NIMBY and thus have harder troubles at pushing through legislation and most importantly: skyscrapers. The less people, the less chances of NIMBY's and the lower chance of skyscrapers being blocked by Square Mile 'locals'.

The best idea would be to build around in say Tower Hamlets and draw the people in then. The City of London Tram (which is proposed) could do this I believe.

This isn't one of mine, but I do work for the scheme's planning consultants. I have lots of info on the other schemes, but none I can share... sorry!
