    Exchange Square receives its first award nomination

    We’ve really appreciated the glowing feedback we’ve received for Exchange Square since it opened earlier this year, from the tenants of Broadgate to local residents we’ve met walking their dogs in their new park.

    It’s great to now be receiving recognition with its first award nomination: Best Public Space at The Pineapples. This awards series is organised by The Developer and Festival of Place, and celebrates thriving public spaces which make a positive environmental and social impact on urban life.

    Exchange Square starts on site

    DSDHA's major new public park Exchange Square has started on site at Broadgate for our client British Land.

    Suspended above the live railway tracks of Liverpool Street Station, the 1.5 acre park will offer a four-fold increase in the amount of greenery, dramatically enhancing biodiversity and improving local ecology. 

    A technically challenging construction on a restricted urban site, the 15 month-long build will deliver a new park for the City of London.

    Exchange Square is the culmination of DSDHA’s Broadgate public realm framework, and offers an unfolding meandering landscape across several levels, with opportunities for rest and reflection, aiming to encourage diverse audiences to enjoy this public amenity. Bringing nature and wellbeing to the fore, in balance with technology, Exchange Square is an informal open-air space in which to meet, celebrate, work and relax surrounded by greenery.
