Plantation Lane is a new street in the City of London, created as part of British Land's Plantation Place Estate, an office development comprised of two buildings designed by Arup Associates. Plantation Place is the larger of the two, a glassy building with stone fins and integral louvers articulating the facades. Plantation Place South is smaller though heavier in appearance with its predominantly stone exterior. Plantation Lane separates these two buildings, as well as some older buildings sitting on the block, while also connecting the buildings and the surrounding context.
