The 25-storey commercial office scheme, located close to the new Crossrail entrance at Moorgate station, consists of 419,093 sq ft of office space and 11,785 sq ft of ground level retail. The prominent City of London scheme will rise 1128m high above pavement level, with a double-height retail unit within a ‘street block’ along Finsbury Pavement. The development sets a new  standard for office buildings. To deliver this, architect Make’s striking design has three central themes – the wellness of occupants, connectivity of spaces and the creation of a community of businesses. It includes the creation of a double-height entrance and lobby with a single storey of business space will be located at mezzanine level within the ‘street block’.  Occupiable office space will cover 22 floors, with five accessible roof terraces. Three basement levels are provided for retail servicing, plant, facilities management, cycle and shower facilities.
