Plans have emerged for another 20-storey office block in Blackfriars Road.
The owners of Friars Bridge Court – a 10-storey block building only a quarter of a century old – have put forward proposals to replace the building with a new structure twice the height and with nearly twice as much floor space.
The proposed new building would be slightly shorter than the recently completed 240 Blackfriars Road tower to the north east.
Completed in 1991, Friars Bridge Court was originally used by British Rail's Network SouthEast division. It still has several railway-related tenants, including train operating companies South West Trains and Southeastern.
It stands on the site of Running Horses Yard, formely part of the Sainsbury's headquarters complex.
Friars Bridge Court is part of a portfolio held by Kennedy Wilson Europe Real Estate plc. Last year it was valued at £69.9 million.
