Goldman Sachs’ latest plans for office space in City of London

gs logoUS global investment banking and securities firm, Goldman Sachs, is due to take office space in the City of London as US company KPF is announced as the project’s chosen architect.

KPF were in tough competition with rivals Foster & Partner’s as well as Pei Cobb Freed on the project which will see Fleet House, BT’s telephone exchange building at 70 Farringdon Street, transformed into the European headquarters of Goldman Sachs.

Once completed, the office will span nearly 1000,000 square metres and will offer nine storeys of London serviced office space on the south side of the Holborn Viaduct.

Amidst the plans for this impressive new construction, developers are required to preserve the building’s nine ceramic murals at street level, done by ceramicist and painter Dorothy Annan. Each mural represents a form of communication technology for the building as it was once home to hundreds of telephonists, and City of London planners maintain that the murals must always be preserved.

This will not be the first London office property occupied by Goldman Sachs, who already have office space in St Paul’s as well as other areas, yet the aim for this new office space is to to bring all their London staff together.
