ReardonSmith Landscape were appointed by the City of London to develop a scheme of public realm improvements for the northern section of St Mary Axe. The proposals sought to balance the requirements of The City and the aspirations of the developer to introduce urban greening and pedestrian priority to a key route through the heart of the Eastern Cluster. The scheme will be a catalyst for future improvements along the length of St Mary Axe.

The proposals take reference from the section of London Wall which traverses underneath the street and historical 'Trading Tokens', pressed circular pieces of leather which were used for monetary trades across the different City companies and were often redeemed in the 'new' influx of fashionable coffee houses in 16th/17th Century.
