Following the win of a limited invited competition in June 2004, the practice was commissioned to develop proposals for part of the redevelopment of the site of the former London Stock Exchange buildings at 60 Threadneedle Street. The building occupies a prominent site at the junction of Old Broad Street and Threadneedle Street in the City of London.
The new ten-storey 325,000 ft² office building incorporates a new public pedestrian passageway with retail frontage across the site, provides a visual and physical connection between neighbouring streets, enhancing the public realm and townscape setting. The building was completed in January 2009 and was voted 'City Development of the Year' at the Property Week Office Development Awards in November 2009, and also achieved a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating.
