This thriving district is home to Western Europe’s tallest building, The Shard; the new office tower, The News Building; the London Bridge Concourse; and the soon-to-be-completed residential development, Shard Place
Adamson Associates was the Executive Architect for the London Bridge Quarter development designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop. Envisioned as a vertical city with retail, residential units, hotel, offices and observation galleries, the project comprises the Shard at London Bridge (“The Shard”), a 72-storey, mixed-use tower which contains residences, the luxury Shangri-La Hotel, and 528,000 sf of high-performance office space; the 17-storey News Building; and the regeneration of the London Bridge Transit Station Concourse.
The overall development is unified by the public realm which wraps around each of the individual elements. The site comprises approximately 1.5 hectares and fosters an urban environment where quality of life and environment are integral to the development. At the heart of London Bridge Quarter is a major new public space on the Station concourse level that accommodates kiosks, market stalls, and venues for temporary public events. Currently, we are working on The Shard Place, a new 26-storey residential tower at the lower level of the London Bridge Quarter Redevelopment.
The Shard, The News Building, and the London Bridge Concourse were completed in 2013 and the new residential building, Shard Place, is slated for completion in 2020.
