The gaping hole in the ground near Cannon Street Station is starting to give up its structure with the concrete cores for the new Bloomberg Place HQ emerging skywards. The ten floor towers will be linked by sky bridges and initial drawings of the scheme show a high degree of planting and ‘green walls’.

Built atop a 2000 year old Roman Temple, the new HQ will consolidate local operations currently based further north in the City and provide a new home for further elements of the Bloomberg empire.

It is going to be interesting to see how this new construction fits with the nearby historic buildings which include, the Bank of England, Mansion House and Royal Exchange. Due to competition from London’s Canary Wharf and Frankfurt, the City has relaxed some of its stringent planning requirements of old, enabling the construction of new large sites such as Bloomberg Place.
