About the Project
Aldgate Place phase 2 is a mixed-use development.
The project comprises of 136,000 sq. ft, 26-storey build-to-rent residential building, offering 159 new rental homes. In addition to a 7-storey commercial office building across 19,500 sq. ft with an additional 8,000 sq. ft retail space.
This project has a special focus on biodiversity and wellbeing, targeting net zero carbon through tracking and offsetting our carbon footprint.
Through our work with British Land and Getjar the project team have reduced the amount of cement used in the concrete frame structure by 30% making a significant impact on the buildings embodied carbon.
