Facts

  • The entrance area is accessed from the building's own private road.
  • The building has a series of stepped set-backs, each of which is topped with a roof garden at floors 5, 9 and 12.
  • The building has a BREEAM rating of 'excellent'.
  • This project replaces Drapers Gardens, a 100m (328ft) tall, 1960s office tower designed by Richard Seifert. The tower was disliked by many because of its proximity to St. Paul's Cathedral. The redesign represents a height reduction of 26m (85ft).
  • Archaeological excavations prior to construction unearthed a hoard of 4th century Roman metal vessels, timbers dated to 62 AD, 1st century palisades and possibly a children's cemetary, a timber Roman door and 4th century timber piles; the excavation represented one of the City's most important to date.
  • The building is triple glazed with an externally ventilated, double walled cladding system.
