"Hammerson is heading for another row with residents of the Barbican, over its 500,000 sq ft office development on London Wall, in the City of London.
"Barbican residents say that, although Hammerson has involved them in an 18-month consultation on the design, larger concerns have been ignored. Tim Macer, deputy chair of the Barbican Association, told Property Week:
"We are supportive of many aspects of the redevelopment, but we think they’ve just gone too far and the scheme they’ve planned is just too big."A spokeswoman for Hammerson said:
"We are pleased that the regeneration proposals for London Wall Place have been recommended for approval and that the complexities and unique nature of the site have been recognised in the report."
