Office space in St Paul’s, London
St Paul’s is an area to the west of the City of London covering the EC4 postcode. It takes its name from the imposing cathedral designed by Sir Christopher Wren following the Great Fire of London in 1666.
The original cathedral was a wooden structure that was quickly destroyed as the fire swept through vast areas of the City. Today, if you walk around the area you will notice many churches designed by Wren as part of the ambitious rebuilding of the City of London.
Recent developments around St Paul’s have improved the overall appearance of the area following extensive discussions that even included HRH Prince Charles. Many ugly 1960’s office blocks built following significant bomb damage in the Second World War, have made way for well designed buildings that are more sympathetic to the historic area around the cathedral. The result has attracted many new businesses, retail stores, bars and cafes and is now home to investment businesses like Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs and Nomura.
The area benefits from excellent transport links across London making it easy to access the amenities of the West End and the financial district of Canary Wharf for international connections via London City Airport.
