Plans unveiled for “most sustainable office tower in London”
A commercial developer has revealed its designs for what it claims will be London’s ‘most sustainable’ office complex.
EDGE, which specialises in energy-efficient buildings, has unveiled plans for a new 255,000 sq ft tower known as EDGE London Bridge.
Comprising 26 floors of commercial space, the development on St Thomas Street on the city’s South Bank will also feature a publicly accessible ground floor as well as a green garden.
The project, which is expected to be completed in 2024, has been designed to achieve both BREEAM Outstanding and WELL Platinum certification, as well as a reduction in regulated carbon emissions above 50 per cent onsite.
EDGE COO, Boudewijn Ruitenburg, commented: “These trying times make the importance of healthier and more sustainable buildings even more clear. We will continue to address this in working with all our stakeholders and partners.
“We aim to make EDGE London Bridge the most sustainable office tower in London, offering high quality office space with the highest wellbeing standards.
“We aim to make a significant and sustainable impact on further development in London, without losing sight of the history and heritage that is part of London’s appeal.”
Edward Beaver, partner at Simten Developments, EDGE’s local development partner for the project, commented: “Having delivered a number of innovative schemes in London, we are delighted to go even further with EDGE, bringing their deeply sustainable approach to the London market.”
