Perhaps the simple detailing and curved glass facades refer back to the famous building on Fleet Street? The Daily Express Building at 120 Fleet Street is a Grade II* listed building in the City of London. The newspaper building was designed in 1932 by Ellis and Clark. The office block is one of the most prominent examples of art-deco / Streamline Moderne architecture in London:

Blackfriars Road is a road in Southwark

Blackfriars Road is a road in Southwark, SE1. It runs between St George’s Circus at the southern end and Blackfriars Bridge over the River Thames at the northern end, leading to the City of London. Halfway up on the west side is Southwark tube station, on the corner with The Cut. Opposite is Palestra, a large new office building which houses the Surface transport division of TfL.

The road forms part of the A201. The road adjoins Stamford Street and Southwark Street at the northern end. Originally known as Surrey Street, the road was built in the 1760s as the south approach to Blackfriars Bridge, and was laid out by the bridge surveyor, Robert Mylne.
