Refurbished Grade II Listed Commercial Property, EC4, London

Located directly opposite Cannon Street station, and just a short walk from Mansion House and the Bank of England, 103 Cannon Street offers contemporary, refurbished office space, within a Grade II listed building.

103 Cannon Street

Built from Portland stone, by architect F. Jameson in 1866, 103 Cannon Street now stands between two modern buildings. The property acquired Grade II listed status in 1972, owing to its Neo-Byzantine architectural features, such as its arched windows, decorative roof parapet and corbelled cornices.

This commercial property in EC4, has recently undergone extensive refurbishment. Ever floor of office space has been renovated, new bathroom facilities have been fitted throughout, and an eight-person lift has been installed to service every floor. The sash windows have been sympathetically restored, then an additional timber frame has been overlaid inside to provide additional heat and sounds insulation.

EC4 Public Gardens

Office workers occupying commercial property in EC4 can take advantage of a number of local public gardens. Carter Gardens and Festival Gardens are just a short walk away, in the direction of the Thames. Both were created on bomb damaged land, not fit for redevelopment, and provide an ideal place for a lunchtime picnic. Directly behind the offices at 103 Cannon Street, is St Swithin’s Churchyard. This garden is overlooked by the north aspect of the building, and is a little known public space, with a fascinating history. The site was originally occupied by a medieval church, erected in the 13th century.

Rich Local History

103 Cannon Street lies in the heart of the City, amongst some of London’s most famous landmarks. Just a few feet away is the home of the London Stone. This piece of Roman history is lodged behind a protective metal grille, in the front of a commercial property in EC4. The stone is thought to be a marker used as much as 3,000 years ago by the Romans to denote the centre of London, with all distances to other cities being measured from this point.

A few minutes walk eastwards is the Monument to the Great Fire of London. The tower is the same length from base to tip, as the distance from the monument’s position to the location of the source of the fire. There is a viewing platform at the top of the column, open to the public, affording panoramic views of the City.

Also within walking distance are St Paul’s cathedral, the Bank of England and Mansion House.

Local Amenities

Commercial property in EC4 benefits from numerous London Underground stations, access to national railway stations, and proximity to a large number of restaurants, bars and luxury hotels. The location provides an easy commute for colleagues, and an ideal location for entertaining clients.

This commercial property in EC4 has four floors of refurbished office space ready for occupation. For more information or to book a viewing appointment, please call Newton Perkins or Kinney Green today.
