SJ8398 : 55 King Street, Manchester

55 King Street, Manchester
55 King Street, Manchester
Granite-clad offices for the District Bank, 1966-69, by Casson, Conder & Partners. Like its neighbour (SJ8398 : Pall Mall Court, King Street, Manchester) it is an original take on the 1960s office block. Curiously shaped with two almost-regular octagons at either end joined by a lateral block which is recessed above the ground floor. In plan it resembles the handheld control for a video game.
Its impressive banking hall was lost in conversion to shops in 2000.
