    DSDHA Submits Plans for a Major New Public Park in the City of London

    We have re-imagined Broadgate's Exchange Square as a bucolic landscape suspended above the tracks of Liverpool Street Station. The proposed scheme will increase the green space four-fold and deliver a major new public park for the City of London, with its meandering forms echoing the estuarine character of East Anglia: the ultimate destination of the departing trains below. 

    This design builds upon the success of the first phase of our spatial strategy for the estate, which applied the notion of Time-Based urbanism to deliver innovative designs for Broadgate Circle, Finsbury Avenue Square and Broadgate Plaza.

    Works to Exchange Square are expected to start on site in the autumn, with completion anticipated in the summer of 2020.
