Under the second £28m contract with UD Europe, a wholly owned subsidiary of NTT Urban Development, McLaren will redevelop King William Street near Bank Station.

Located behind a 1920s Grade II listed building, the 1997 extension will be 50% demolished from roof to ground, while retaining its core structure. The demolished portion will be replaced with a new primary structure, built with handmade bricks.

According to McLaren, both new projects will provide a combined office space of more than 198,694ft².
