UK architecture studio Foster + Partners has been granted planning approval for 18 Blackfriars Road, a development that will contain two residential blocks and a 45-storey office skyscraper.

The studio claimed that the project would have the lowest carbon footprint of any tall building in London.

“[18 Blackfriars Road] will feature London’s lowest whole-life carbon high-rise, which also aims to be the first to achieve the WELL Community Gold rating,” said Foster + Partners head of studio Nigel Dancey.
