Our latest blog focuses on two iconic buildings within the Broadgate Campus – shining a light on 1 Finsbury Avenue and 100 Liverpool Street.
Here we unpack the key features and differences between the two landmark locations.
1 Finsbury Avenue
Located in the heart of London’s fintech sector, 1 Finsbury Avenue was refurbished in 2019 with Storey occupying two floors of the building, 54,570 sq ft of office space and units starting from 1,600 sq ft ideal for scale-up businesses in the City.
The building was originally constructed in the 1980s and was one of the first developments in the Broadgate campus. As a Grade II listed building, leading construction architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) have redesigned the space – giving the former industrial warehouse a modern and contemporary edge.
It has bold interiors in the inside communal space, with award-winning Morag Myerscough’s ‘Atoll’ installation acting as a visual focal point in the central atrium.
Its 3,000 sq ft roof terrace is the showstopper. The space has spectacular views over the City – providing the perfect opportunity for Storey customers to host outdoor meetings or enjoy their lunchbreaks outside.
Butterscotch Bakery serves freshly baked artisan pastries in the downstairs atrium which can be ordered for meetings. Baraka is also on the building’s doorstep, providing an array of dishes originating from Turkey, as well as restaurant Bar Douro City, inspired by Portuguese cuisine.
This is a unique, vibrant office space for businesses looking for a visual and contemporary working environment, with plenty of unique aesthetics and break-out areas to keep teams inspired.
100 Liverpool Street
100 Liverpool Street is so much more than just a building.
Ideally located next to Liverpool Street Station and the newly opened Elizabeth Line, 100 Liverpool Street offers three levels of premium shops, gyms, bars and restaurants – including the newly announced Los Mochis, set to open their flagship restaurant on the rooftop of 100 Liverpool Street, boasting dramatic views of the City.
100 Liverpool Street has become an iconic landmark in its own right. The building is known for its dramatic architecture, with sophisticated interiors and a focus on sustainability – using recycled materials sourced from ocean plastic.
Storey and Storey Club occupy the first and second floor with 33,000 sq ft of office space. The floor offers plenty of places to work, including private booths and communal break-out areas, as well as its ever-popular BloomsYard Café selling an array of fresh juices, snacks and pastries.
