In December 2010, Bloomberg embarked on the construction of a new building in the heart of the City of London that would meet the needs of our growing employee population and represent our company’s culture, values and ambitions, from the ground up.
Located between the Bank of England and St Paul’s Cathedral, the new site occupies 3.2 acres and will provide approximately 1.1 million square feet of sustainable office space, three new public spaces – two featuring a specially commissioned artwork – a retail arcade that will reinstate an ancient Roman travel route, and an anticipated cultural hub that will restore the Temple of Mithras to its original site.
Conceived by Mike Bloomberg in collaboration with leading architect Lord Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, the new building’s design is sympathetic to its surrounding context, an exemplar of sustainable design and uniquely of its place and time – a natural extension of the City that will endure and improve the surrounding public realm.
