Ropemaker Place To Tie Up

The Moorgate mini-cluster on the edge of the City of London is set to take another step forwards. The developer Hellical Bar is set to file for planning permission next week, at Ropermaker Place.

The tower, designed by German firm Gensler Associates is set to be a series of interlocking blocks of 8 and 24 floors and the height is expected to come in at about that of the neighbouring Citypoint and Barbican towers.

Deutschbank have been linked to the project as a potential tenant and are known to be shopping for a new headquarters for years and have previously been linked to Riverside South in Canary Wharf and also a 200m tall leaning tower designed by Shepard Robson for the same site at Ropermaker Place.

Both schemes have now been ruled out by D.B thanks to recent redundancies making them too large for current requirements however Shepard Robson have been in talks for some time with another potential customer about the 20 degree leaning design for a different site in the City.
