Carliol House and Commercial Union House, Pilgrim Street, NE1
See also NZ2564 : Carliol House, Market Street (East), NE1. Unfortunately, not only is Commercial Union House a particularly glaring example of early 1970's pre-cast concrete ****-you neo-brutalism, it also has the effrontery to jut out half-way across Pilgrim Street, thereby disrupting the views up and down this historic route - see NZ2564 : 112-118 Pilgrim Street*, NE1. A view north up Pilgrim Street is shown in NZ2564 : Pilgrim Street, NE1. The "Modern Architecture" website somewhat understates the awfulness of this building by saying that it makes "a negative contribution to the streetscape" LinkExternal link .
