Proposed 45 Beech Street

45 Beech Street
Plans submitted

Following conversations with the community, we have now submitted a planning application to the City of London to sensitively refurbish and repurpose 45 Beech Street – located on the edge of the Barbican and Golden Lane estates.

The City of London is now holding a statutory consultation, where you can submit any final comments on the plans. You can do this by searching for the planning reference number – 24/00176/FULL – on the City’s planning portal, here.

We would like to thank all those who have taken the time so far to comment on our proposals, or attend our consultation events last September. We appreciate all of the feedback we have received and are pleased to see that much of our ambitions for the site are shared with those living locally.

Giving 45 Beech Street a sustainable future

We are proposing to re-use as much of the current building as possible, limiting the impacts of demolition and construction on the area and dramatically decreasing the amount of carbon produced.

The aim is to establish as vibrant community inside the building as exists in the surrounding Barbican and Golden Lane neighbourhoods and ensure that this piece of architecture integrates more positively with its surroundings.

We have been working closely with City of London officers since the consultation to bring forward a scheme which reflects the ambitions of the City and is in keeping with the local area.

Our proposals will:

Secure the long-term future of the building as a new residential community

Significantly improve the energy performance bringing it up to modern standards

Open up the ground floor to the existing local community with a public café and co-working lounge

Re-use parts of the existing structure and façade materials that are still in good shape, reducing the carbon spend on the project

Enhance the public realm making the area greener and more accessible, with new biodiverse planting across the development
