City of London scraps plan for ‘Tate Modern of classical music’
Corporation says impact of Covid pandemic has made £288m Centre for Music project by Diller Scofidio & Renfro unfeasible.
The Centre for Music was billed as being an acoustically perfect 2,000-seat concert hall for the London Symphony Orchestra (LSO) and would have had restaurants, commercial space and a smaller venue for jazz performances.
The City of London confirmed, however, that the project had been axed.
“Alternative proposals for the site, currently occupied by the Museum of London, will be brought forward over the coming months.”
