Trinity EC3 is Beetham’s £950m office and commercial scheme situated in the heart of London’s insurance district.
The name and branding reflect the massing of three buildings within the City, derving an EC3 postcode. The name also reflects the history of this area drawing inspiration from the Augustinian Priory of Holy Trinity Aldgate which was founded by Queen Matilda, wife of Henry I, in 1108.
Trinity has been conceived and designed as a multi-let estate, introducing more than one million square feet of prime office space in to the heart of the City. A cluster of three buildings 12, 15 and 23 storeys high.
The buildings are located to the edge of the site and connected by a glazed canopy to create a series of large public arcades that provide direct access to the London Underground and bus system.
This unique space will host a spectrum of amenities, including a 23rd floor public space and restaurant.
Stephen Beetham, chief executive officer of Beetham, said: “It is a landmark project which will not only help to establish the area’s identity, but which will create facilities for the community, provide jobs for local residents and attract shoppers to the neighbourhood.”
Planning was granted in December 2007 and the scheme is expected to be completed by 2014.
