The scheme comprises two office buildings surrounded by extensive public realm including a series of public gardens and reimagined elevated pedestrian walkways to link the neighbouring Barbican with the City of London. The two buildings enclose the new London Wall Place gardens. 1 London Wall Place delivers 310,000ft2 of new state-of-the-art office and trading facilities, and a series of nine roof terraces over 13 storeys.

With half of the site dedicated to public realm, London Wall Place has created a new destination for the City. The public realm is formed of a series of pocket gardens for people to discover that, together with the adjacent Salters’ Hall Garden and soon-to-be-completed St Alphage Garden, delivers more than 1.5 acres of public space and over 780m2 of green walls across multiple terraced levels. The walkways, which include four bridges that cross London Wall, Wood Street, Fore Street and Fore Street Avenue, cover 350m and house a new raised garden.
