Benjamin Street tops out

The 1-5 Benjamin Street team celebrated the building reaching its highest point with a ceremony on site this week. The design for Benjamin Street is a modern interpretation of a Victorian brick warehouse replacing two existing buildings on a site that has been owned by the Worshipful Company of Girdlers for more than 400 years. Located in the Clerkenwell Conservation Area and very close to the new Crossrail hub at Farringdon, the new building will include a mix of offices, retail and apartments, and is due to complete later this year.
