50 Fenchurch Street

50 Fenchurch Street is an island site bounded by Fenchurch Street, Mincing Lane, Dunster Court, and Mark Lane. The site is owned by The Clothworkers’ Company. Apart from the medieval Tower of All Hallows Staining and the subterranean Lambe’s Chapel Crypt, all the buildings were built after 1945. These buildings include the Clothworkers’ Hall, Minster House, 46-50 Fenchurch Street, 51-54 Fenchurch Street and St Olave’s Church Hall.

The proposed 50 Fenchurch Street includes two listed buildings, the Grade I listed Tower of All Hallows Staining and the Grade II listed Lambe’s Chapel Crypt. Neither are currently accessible to the public as they are on private land. 50 Fenchurch Street will provide over 62,000 sq m of flexible office space arranged around a central core. Floor plates vary in size’ to maximise the building’s appeal to a range of  City occupiers.

The proposed scheme sets the Tower within a new street level public realm, with the aspiration of providing public access to the interior. Lambe’s Chapel Crypt is to be relocated to a publicly accessible location on site, providing the opportunity to improve the Crypt’s presentation, setting and understanding.
