New City flats on St Bart’s site

Property group Helical Bar hopes to attract City staff to live closer to work with its latest development. The firm has released plans for 225 new flats and 230,000 square feet of offices on the St Bartholemew’s Hospital site near Little Britain. The firm and its joint venture partner Baupost hope to have formal plans ready to submit in February and start work in two years, having bought the site from the NHS for £55m earlier this year.
