Set to open in Spring 2019, the restaurant will operate on the floor below a public sky garden and will boast striking views of the capital including the River Thames, Tower Bridge, Tower of London and The Shard.
The building, which is adjacent to Leadenhall Market, was designed by Eric Parry Architects and will in addition provide some 420,000 square foot of new Grade A office accommodation over 13 storeys, and around 27,000 square foot of retail space at ground level.
“After a series of regional UK openings, including our recently launched rooftop restaurant 20 Stories in Manchester, and the announcement of our international expansion with Bluebird opening in New York later this year, 120 Fenchurch Street represents a return to London for what will be our largest new venture here since Aster in Victoria,” says Des Gunewardena, Chairman and CEO of D&D London.
“London continues to be a significant part of D&D’s growth strategy and the project also reflects our continuing commitment to the City. 120 Fenchurch is a remarkable building and I hope that we can create a restaurant to match.”
