Broad Street House, Old Broad Street and Heron Tower, Bishopsgate
The former dates from 1972-77 and was designed by Ley, Colbeck & Partners. A stone slab with smoked-glass curtain-walling sits on a brown-granite podium (TQ3381 : Broad Street House, Old Broad Street).
The Heron Tower, by Kohn Pedersen Fox, was completed in 2010 and will remain the tallest building in the City (755 feet) until the Pinnacle (down the road) reaches 756 feet.
