For 20 Gresham Street, M3 helped achieve a new planning consent for the 240,000 sq ft building, increasing on quality and quantity of office space than a previously consented scheme. The commission commenced with a full design review and feasibility study of the existing consented project, after which we created a new design brief, procured a design team and managed the scheme’s progress towards a new planning application. The resulting resolution to grant consent enabled the client to proceed with a speedy sale of the site to secure its investment return.
