120 Moorgate Approved

The City of London has approved the latest designs for 120 Moorgate, a site near Moorgate underground station that is being developed by Redevco.

The previous plans were penned by Allies and Morrison at the peak of the boom back in 2006, but since then the economic winds have changed and the developer has brought in Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands instead.

The building now consists of 11 floors above ground, and two floors below ground. There will be ground floor retail on the street-fronts, and a separate office reception. Part of the first floor will also be retail, whilst there will be further retail units on the upper basement and part of the lower basement.

The height of the scheme was decided as the most appropriate for the site fitting in with the Helicon Building that stands next door. At the height it is set at of 42 metres it will also not be visible behind the roof-lines of the buildings that front Finsbury Circus. The building is split into two interlocking blocks, the short of which is six floors, providing a step back for the upper levels and a terrace on floor seven that the office occupants can enjoy.

Dominating the exterior are strong vertical lines, with horizontal bands of cladding set to correspond with the floor levels of the neighbouring buildings and thus add continuity to the streetscape, and most specifically the listed neighbouring Britannic House.

The cladding on each of the blocks will contrast however to mark them out, with a creamy colour palette employed on the shorter block that should help it blend in with its stone neighbour at street level, and dark grey aluminium used on the larger section which will be visible rising above.

With 18,994 square metres of space, the developer hope that they can complete the scheme in 2014.

Central London data centre from Volta to serve Tech City

A new co-location data centre will be opening in central London next year, aiming to cater to the ultra-low latency needs of businesses in the City and around “Silicon Roundabout”.

Launched by Volta, a new data centre provider formed by industry veterans Matthew Dent, Julian King and Ian Charles Wright, the facility will be housed in the old Reuters building in Great Sutton Street. It is situated on a secure island site and will offer 8,500m² of floor space over six stories.

The basement and ground floor will predominantly be used for electrical distribution, four floors above that are all data hall, and the chiller plant is housed on the roof.
