Theres times when you have to admit that the newer building is superior the older one. Trust me some forumers on here know that im one of the first to deplore the destruction of older properties but in this case its a great thing. Look at the newer building for gods sake, roof gardens, and that central atrium wow . As long as it will be finished in context I wont mind.

The key aspect of the new proposal is that it opens up the site for the public. The view from the central atrium towards St. Paul's creates a totally new view of the Cathedral, and the rooftop spaces should be truly unique. I regret that the current building has to go too, because there aren't many others like it in the City and I'd like to see it refurbed, but I'd be happy with the new scheme. That part of the City has been downtrodden for a while now, and all of a sudden it has huge momentum with a cluster of redevelopment schemes. This is a key part of that, so it's an important scheme. Immediately to the left of this image will be this building, 150 Cheapside (demolition begun):



Just further east along Cheapside will be One Wood Street:



and finally adjacent to One New Change, between that and St. Mary-le-Bow Church, will be Bow Bells House:



None are particularly special buildings, but they're an improvement over what is there now and they'll collectively rejuvenate what is at the moment a fairly lacklustre part of the City, especially considering it contains 3 of the City's most treasured churches.

Since then, at least ten cranes of this size have been added to the site.


I'll try and take some more photos and post then up on this website.

I would rather say LDN knows how to destroy the historic buildings very well.

I agree that the view will be great,but it's not worthy of demolishing a huge typical red-brick building.Modern malls can be built anytime,everywhere in the world.Old historic buildings are part of the city's character.

Yeah I'm not by convinced this either. Not that I like much of what Jean Nouvel does. He's pretty overrated IMO
