Renzo Piano Building Workshop has been awarded planning approval for Feilden House, a 26-storey residential building at London Bridge Quarter, directly adjacent to the Shard. Designed to complement the Shard and Place Buildings, the third piece of Piano's London Bridge Developments will add "generous public realm amenities" to the area at ground level.

Thanks to its public realm additions, the design was approved unanimously by Southwark planning committee. The design is planned for completion in 2018, at which point the current plans for the "New London Bridge Quarter," including the renewed London Bridge Station, will be complete.
