Savings and investment company M&G Prudential is investing GBP 875 million in the development of an office complex in London, which has been said to resemble the fictional Gotham City featured in Batman. The site, known as 40 Leadenhall Street in the City of London, has planning permission for two new towers, which will be constructed alongside three existing buildings that are to be left untouched. Make Architects have designed what they describe as a striking 34-storey tower that recalls the classic North American skyscrapers of the early 20th century, plus a smaller 14-storey tower.

James Taylor project lead at Make said that “The design breaks new ground and will join the City of London’s celebrated portfolio of modern buildings.”

According to Make, ‘Gotham City’ is one of the biggest developments ever to receive planning permission in London’s ‘Square Mile’ financial district.

Together the two skyscrapers will offer over 80,000m2 of office space and, despite their size, will produce 30% less carbon than the current regulations allow.
