Heron to build 43-storey skyscraper

London planning chiefs have given the green light to a new 150m skyscraper by Heron International that will complement one of the city’s existing high-rise landmarks.

The 43-storey Heron Plaza will be a stone’s throw away from the Heron Tower, which has 46 floors and is 202m tall. Developers say the new building will include a hotel along with residential and retail space.

Heron said that both towers would combine “to establish a new mixed use centre which will offer a significant addition to the city’s architecture, environment and facilities for business”.

“We are very pleased that the City of London has approved our plans for this second tower that will sit next to Heron Tower and complete our Heron Plaza development,” said Heron International chief executive Gerald Ronson.

“This planning consent will enable us to continue our transformation of the City of London, providing much needed, unparalleled hotel and residential facilities which reflect London’s status as the financial capital of the world.”
