Heritage groups say ’overbearing’ 21-storey block would harm neighbouring 1932 Daily Express building

Heritage groups have called for the height of a proposed Bjarke Ingels Group-designed office block on Fleet Street in the City of London to be lowered because of its impact on nearby buildings.

The art deco-inspired proposals would see the existing River Court Building, the former home of Goldman Sachs, flattened and replaced by a 21-storey block featuring a series of stepped roof terraces.

The new scheme would rise above Owen Williams and Ellis E Clarke’s 1932 Daily Express Building and surround it on two sides.
