One Wood Street, opposite the oldest tree in the City, was completed in 2007 and pre-let during construction to Eversheds as their headquarters. The ground floor retail units were also pre-let to major high street brands, Jaeger and Ted Baker. The design combines office and retail space and substantial public realm that includes a new square orientated to catch the lunchtime sunshine. It was granted planning permission in fifteen weeks, and the completed building is well received in the City and seen an exemplar project by Land Securities. Within the height restrictions determined by the proximity of St Paul's, and the need to improve the street level environment, public and private outdoor spaces are finished in high-quality materials that are robust, sustainable and simply handled.
