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 residential development Shard Place
Adamson Associates is the Executive Architect for the London Bridge Quarter redevelopment, 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, a 72-storey, mixed-use skyscraper containing residences, the luxury Shangri-La Hotel, and 528,000 sf of high-performance office space; the 17-storey, 428,000 sf News Building office tower; and the regeneration of the London Bridge Transit Station Concourse. Shard Place, a 26-storey residential tower at the lower level of the Quarter, is the latest addition.
The 1.5 hectare site is envisioned as an energetic urban environment in which quality of life is integral to the design. 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.
