Planning permission has been granted for 55 Old Broad Street

We are thrilled to announce that Landsec has successfully obtained planning permission for 55 Old Broad Street, a striking 24-storey mixed-use building in London’s prestigious Square Mile.

Turner & Townsend alinea has supported this office-led scheme, providing cost management services in close collaboration with Turner & Townsend, who has overseen its project management since 2022. The scope of work encompasses the renovation of the existing Grade II-listed bath house, as well as significant public realm improvements. A new pub will also be included, alongside retail and approximately 5,500m2 of ancillary space. This comprehensive scheme will offer 33,081m2 of modern office space, catering to the evolving needs of the local community. Combining retention, refurbishment and development, the scheme replaces part of an existing 1970s office block with a new ground floor and a 24-storey building while retaining two existing basement levels.

This scheme provides two compelling reasons for both workers and visitors to come, be inspired, and stay for longer. The first venue is 65 Old Broad Street Studios. Building on the City’s heritage of craft and enterprise, 65 Old Broad Street Studios will provide a new creative hub in the heart of the City, with space for artists and makers, and workshops and exhibitions available to the public.  The second venue will be created by the sensitive restoration and refurbishment of the Grade II listed Victorian Bath House. Currently used for private events, this will be turned into a community and cultural events space.

We extend our warmest congratulations to Landsec, and we are delighted to be working alongside our colleagues at Turner & Townsend and the wider project team. Together, we are committed to delivering a truly exceptional development that will contribute to the vibrant landscape of London’s Square Mile.
