Posted on by John Cronin

A refurbished office scheme in the heart of the City of London has been recognised at an annual heritage awards ceremony.

1 Bartholomew LaneThe renovated office building (pictured – source) at 1 Bartholomew Lane, located opposite the Bank of England, has been highly commended in the City Heritage Award 2011, sponsored by The City Heritage Society and The Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers.

Following a £32m refurbishment programme the building offers approximately 79,000 sq ft of prime office accommodation over 13 floors. The exterior facade has been retained over the lower 6 floors of what was originally a 1930’s bank. The interior has been reconfigured and offers flexible, open plan floor plates. Largest floor plates are on floors 3-6 at around 8,100 sq ft. The building has achieved a BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’.

The offices are marketed as suitable for occupancy by an international corporation, a professional services firm or a financial organisation that would be attracted to the prime, City location. Headline rental prices for the lowers floors are in the range of £55 / sq ft. Rental prices for the upper floors are available on application.

The building is owned by F&C Investments and is part of their City Collection that includes several City-based office schemes. Architects for 1 Bartholomew Lane were Sidell Gibson. Partner in Charge, Richard Morton, said: “We are delighted to receive this recognition from the City of London for our work on this fine building by Mewes and Davis, designers of the Ritz. After a great team effort our client now has a building which will perform effectively for many years to come.”

Marketing agents are CB Richard Ellis.
