Lloyd's of London 1928 building

Categories: Property

Lloyd's first purpose-built premises, at 12 Leadenhall Street. Needing more space Lloyds commissioned the 1958 building, where the Willis building now stands. The 1928 building was demolished to make way for the current "inside-out" Richard Rogers' building. On past performance this is, in its turn, already overdue for demolition.
