LONDON


The City’s ‘Tulip’ granted planning permission


The Tulip, designed by Foster + Partners has been granted planning permission by the City of London Planning and Transportation Committee. The 305 metre tall tower, which will be sited next to 30 St Mary Axe – also known as ‘The Gherkin’ – will feature a viewing platform with rotat- ing pods, a restaurant and a sky bar. The Committee’s positive decision follows the recommendation of the City planning officer’s report, which noted “the significant public socio-economic and cultural benefits for the City, London, and


ADF APRIL 2019 the UK”.


As part of the planning application process, The Tulip Project submitted an ‘Economic Impact Assessment’ by Deloitte, which estimated that The Tulip would offer economic benefits to London of nearly £1bn in total monetised value by 2045 and 600 additional permanent full time jobs during 20 years of operations. According to an independent representative poll of Londoners, conducted by ComRes, two thirds of London adults (65 per cent) think that The Tulip would be


“an attractive addition to the London skyline”, while 69 per cent believe that the proposed development would have “a positive impact on the City’s attractiveness as a visitor and cultural destination”. During the planning application process,


The Tulip Project team engaged with a significant number of local stakeholders including heritage bodies, schools, businesses and residents in the City and neighbouring boroughs. These discussions, together with the views of the planning officers, allowed the team to tailor the proposal to meet their needs and concerns, for example regarding the public realm and the expanded educational facility for free use by 40,000 London state school children per year, as well as community groups. The proposal will now be subject to review by the Mayor of London, who will consider the City’s decision in the wider context of London’s role as a leading global capital.
