The former East India Company's City premises have been converted (1982) into what the developers described as 'London's largest landscaped office development'. The initial design for open spaces (0.8 ha) was by Russell Page (working with Sieferts). His work was confined to the planting. The design plan contains several water features including a Moorish channel garden and a golfball fountain. The pink Portuguese granite sets blend with the warm yellow stock bricks on the old arched warehouses but not with the icy red polished granite which has been used for the new buildings. Most of the external spaces are oppressed by the height of the surrounding offices.
