Boundary House is located on the west side of Jewry Street, close to the junction with Fenchurch Street to the north and Crutched Friars to the south.
The area has traditionally been associated with commerce and trade, later insurance and financial services. The area to the east of Jewry Street is rapidly evolving and attracting some of the most prominent technology, media and telecommunications companies in London. For example Uber, WeWork, Thomson Reuters, Maersk and Sky.
To the south, Boundary House is within easy reach of iconic destinations like the Tower of London, London Bridge and St Katherine Docks. While, to the north there is a thriving array of well-known tourist and hospitality destinations around Liverpool Street, Spitalfields Market and Shoreditch.
In this unique location, Boundary House is perfectly situated to meet the needs of all types of future City users, whether those who live or work in the City or welcoming back visitors and tourists post pandemic.
Boundary House Today
The current Boundary House building is a purpose built 1950s office block arranged over a basement and ground plus seven floors.
Located within the historic fabric of the City, opposite the grade II listed Sir John Cass School and situated close to the Lloyds Avenue Conservation Area, the site itself does not fall within any conservation area.
The proposal has no impact on the setting of the Tower of London World Heritage Site and will not interfere with the London View Management Framework, particularly in the views from the Queen’s Walk on the south side.
Boundary House Today
The current building entrance on Jewry Street is approximately 1.5m above street level and does not meet current accessibility standards. The property has also undergone a rolling refurbishment programme over the years resulting in differing office specifications from floor to floor with varied ceiling heights and heating and cooling systems.
As a result of this ad hoc refurbishment and dated design, the current Boundary House cannot meet the ever changing demands and needs of the modern workforce, residents or visitors to the City of London. Our proposals will change all that.
