Bloomberg London opens

In December 2010, Bloomberg embarked on the construction of a new European headquarters building in the heart of the City of London that would meet the needs of their growing employee population and represent their company’s culture, values and ambitions from the ground up.

Conceived by founder Mike Bloomberg in collaboration with leading architect Lord Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, the new building – located between the Bank of England and St Paul’s Cathedral – is sympathetic to it’s surrounding environment, it is also an exemplar of sustainable design – with a BREEAM outstanding rating – in fact it is the most sustainable major office building in the world.

Occupying a full city block, the 3.2-acre site comprises of two blocks united by bridges that span over a pedestrian arcade that reinstates Watling Street, an ancient Roman road that ran through the site.

Bloomberg’s 4000 London-based employees are now under one roof in their state-of-the-art building/s for the first time.
