Gresham St Paul's

The creative and sustainable reinvention and reuse of an existing 20 year old building, to create a new product in the market.

Gresham St Paul’s at 40 Gresham Street in the City of London will have approximately 170,000 sq. ft. of prime office space over nine floors, with large terraces on the top three floors, at the heart of the financial centre and close to St Paul’s Cathedral and other prominent cultural landmarks.
The design has focussed on creating a sustainable building for the future by reusing the existing structure. Wilkinson Eyre looked to maximise natural light through use of the latest glazing technology, and increase fresh air supply to offer a light and air-filled state-of-the-art working environment. To help cater to modern working practices and promote personal well-being, the ground floor has been designed to provide occupiers with a range of amenities, including a café and business lounge. These will help promote creativity and collaboration amongst occupiers by offering a space to recharge, interact and seek inspiration away from the desk.
The technical specifications include a WiredScore Platinum rating, Wi-Fi enabled café, reception and business lounge, 254 bike and locker spaces with generous changing and shower facilities, and it is targeting a BREEAM Excellent sustainability rating.
The surrounding area has amenities to suit every lifestyle from speciality coffee and craft beer pubs to sophisticated restaurants and bars, as well as innovative health and fitness centres located nearby.
The offices have been prelet to Smith & Williamson who will be relocating from their existing offices.
