The Times: Shell HQ might be redeveloped (*GazpromShell high-rise tower?)

October 03, 2006
Shell has appointed Foster & Partners, the leading architect, to consider an ambitious redevelopment of its headquarters, the Shell Centre, on London’s South Bank next to the London Eye.

The oil giant, which is keen to make the best use of any surplus space on the 5.5-acre site, does not want to demolish the building but it is thought that one option could be the construction of an iconic high-rise tower. Any design, however, would need to be acceptable to London’s Mayor, Ken Livingstone, and local planners.

CB Richard Ellis, the world’s biggest commercial property consultant, and DP9, the planning consultancy, are also advising on the plans. Developers including Land Securities are understood to have approached Shell about getting involved with the project. The new scheme could span millions of square feet.
