Hill Dickinson is pleased to announce the relocation of its London City office to the prestigious premises of The Broadgate Tower at 20 Primrose Street.
After over thirty years in familiar, but now outdated premises at Irongate House, Hill Dickinson has bid a fond farewell to Aldgate and taken up residence in a state-of-the art building more suited to one of the world’s leading maritime law firms.
The Broadgate Tower, completed in 2008, was designed by the Chicago office of award winning architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and is the first tower building in the City designed specifically for the open market. At 540ft (165m) and 35-storeys high, The Broadgate Tower is even taller than the London Eye.
It is also the first City high-rise to feature completely column-free floors, providing over 400, 000 sq ft (37, 200m2) of office space on 33 floors. The entrance hall offers a striking welcome, rising five floors modelled in black granite, coloured glass and stainless steel. Escalators rise from the entrance hall to two upper lobbies, where double-decker lifts, using intelligent destination hall control technology, travel at up to six metres per second to deliver clients to the firm’s spacious reception on the eighth floor – decorated with specially-commissioned art works that reflect the firm’s marine connections with the historic city of London.
Senior partner, David Wareing, is enthusiastic about the new premises: ‘This move reflects Hill Dickinson’s needs and aspirations. Both in location and facilities, The Broadgate Tower offers the ideal space to support the current day needs of our clients and provides a first class working environment for our own talented people.’
