News International abandons AL_A headquarters redesign

Dezeen Wire:
media company News International has cancelled the remodelling of its London headquarters by Amanda Levete Architects.

In 2009 the architect was awarded planning permission for a new campus that would bring together the offices of News International, Harper Collins, MySpace, Dow Jones and Fox. The proposal included new public spaces, accessible walkways and a restaurant, with a series of atria providing natural light and ventilation to the former print works.

News International has decided to sell the site in Wapping, its home for 25 years, and will relocate to nearby Thomas More Square. The company has recently been embroiled in the phone-hacking scandal.
