Proposals have been revealed for a new "Tech City" office tower on the Old Street junction.

The current '90s building, home to the satellite manufacturer Inmarsat, is set to become vacant "in the coming years".

London-based property company Endurance Land has bought the site with the aim of modernising and extending the existing building at 99 City Road.

Under current plans, the tower would be "up to" 36 storeys tall - 160m. 

The new site would contain approximately 4,000 sqm of new affordable workspaces that would be accessible to local businesses and organisations.

Richard Rixson, director at Endurance Land said: “We are really excited to be able to show these plans to the local community for their feedback. We will be creating new affordable workspace, supporting local jobs, and prioritising community engagement.

"Tech City needs a landmark office building, and we think that should be in Islington.”

Endurance Land launched a public consultation on their early vision for the site in September.

Feedback will help to define the proposals before the submission of a full planning application next spring.
