125 Old Broad Street contributes to the backdrop of the iconic City core that is home to the Bank of England, the Mansion House and the Royal Exchange. It is at the centre of an important area of townscape and symbolism, with the surrounding buildings acknowledged as some of the most architecturally and historically significant in the City.

Hammerson UK Properties purchased the site in 2004 and appointed GMW Architects to secure revisions to a planning consent previously obtained by Grimshaw and to deliver the project.

The existing cladding was removed and additional structure has enabled new floor space to be cantilevered beyond the original building line. The new cladding reinforces the verticality of the tower and gives the building an elegant, contemporary appearance.

The original podium was demolished and a new seven-storey building constructed in its place. This is clad in the same materials as the tower.
