View Project Intro

St Helen’s Square is located at the foot of The Leadenhall Building — designed by RSHP — in the heart of the City of London. A busy thoroughfare, the redesign of this key space is set to transform it into an exciting public space. The project will create a world‑class public realm, befitting to its prestigious location

The design is lively and colourful, authentic to the character of the City of London, but interpreted in contemporary terms. Gillespies is creating a place where people will want to convene, relax and repose. A space that is versatile to accommodate different uses and activities, including exhibitions and performances, and also an enduring place to be enjoyed for generations to come.
