An innovative approach to construction above a major transport hub
The News Building, sister building to The Shard, is the international headquarters to some of the world’s most illustrious media brands to London Bridge Quarter, including Dow Jones, The Wall Street Journal, The Times, The Sunday Times, Times Literary Supplement, The Sun and HarperCollins. The building has direct access to London Bridge underground station as well as London Bridge Quarter’s new plaza and the unrivalled connections at London Bridge Station. It provides a seamless transition from station to workplace via escalators through a newly created boutique retail mall.
Designed by The Shard architect Renzo Piano with engineering experts WSP, The News Building is a feat of engineering mastery, requiring meticulous planning, innovative thinking and design solutions owing to its location immediately above the London Bridge tube station. The Northern line escalators, main ticket hall, Jubilee line escalators and platforms, and an escape shaft all sat directly beneath the site.
