Goldman Gets Go-Ahead For London 'Banking Factory’

Thumbs Up At Desk

Goldman Sachs has been granted approval to build a new 'banking factory' in London, ending a protracted bid to develop the site that was held up by protected murals on the existing building.

The Daily Telegraph reports that the firm has been given the go-ahead for its plan which will see existing properties demolished to make way for a new glass-fronted building on the site at Farringdon Street in the capital, around the corner from Goldman’s current headquarters in Fleet Street.

The set of nine ceramic 1960s murals by Dorothy Annan adorning the front of the building will be moved to the nearby Barbican centre.

A City of London planning officer described the new building, which has been designed by architects Kohn Pedersen Fox, as a 'banking factory'.
