London - Downing Street
London - Downing Street
Downing Street was built by a well-known rogue from the civil war era. George Downing was a confident of Oliver Cromwell and rose to become his intelligence chief. When Cromwell died in 1658, Downing realised that his cushy lifestyle was coming to a close, and went cap in hand to King Charles II. Charles was naturally reluctant to employ an enemy of his father – but needed all of his inside information. So he quickly rose up the ranks and gained a lot wealth. Downing decided that the quickest way to build up his bank balance was to develop the land around Whitehall – a prime sight right next to the Royal palace and government buildings. He therefore built a row of brick-terraced houses stretching all the way to St. James’s Park. Prime Ministers who have lived at No. 10 The first prime minister to live at number 10 was Sir Robert Walpole in 1735 – although he didn’t really warrant the title. The Cromwell era had only ended 70 years before, and the Crown was still in the process of handing power to the people. His official title was simply ‘First Lord of the Treasury’ – but is generally regarded as the country’s first PM. The King offered him the property as a gift from the monarch, but he insisted that it be used on an official basis. He also had it knocked through to the house at the back, which overlooked Horse Guards Parade. All of the most important rooms – like the Cabinet Room and White Drawing Room – are housed in the rear. The next two prime ministers preferred to remain in their old homes – and it wasn’t until 1763 that the next one moved in. Unfortunately, he was sacked two years later and Lord North took his place. Benjamin Disraeli William Gladstone Winston ChurchillIt was under Lord North that several major improvements were made – including the famous lamp and lions-head knocker on the door. He also built the checkerboard floor that you sometimes see on the news. The next PM to take up residence was the country’s youngest-ever leader – the 24-year-old William Pitt. He was also the longest-ever resident of Downing Street – bedding down for twenty years between 1783-1801 and 1804-06. 11 Downing Street, Chancellor of the Exchequer No.11 became the official residence of the Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1828, when the surrounding area was filling up with gin-joints and seedy brothels. Crime was so rife, that two prime ministers felt the whistle of an assassin’s bullet – Spencer Perceval and Robert Peel. Robert Peel was lucky, and the gunman got his secretary instead – but Perceval went down and didn’t get up. For the next fifty years few Prime Ministers felt obliged to live there, and it wasn’t until Benjamin Disraeli took up office in 1877 that another one moved in. He persuaded the State to pay for renovations, and turned it into a house fit for a king. Gladstone carried on his good work – installing telephones and electric lighting. The next PM had a thing about the place and chose to live somewhere else, but when Balfour moved in with the PM’s first motor car (1902), the place became synonymous with the job. Every Prime Minister since has lived in the confines of Downing’s little cul-de-sac – even Winston Churchill, when the bombs were falling all around.

201 Bishopsgate and The Broadgate Tower The next phase of the Broadgate development, comprising the 36-storey Broadgate Tower and 12-storey 201 Bishopsgate building, is the largest ever speculative commercial office development in the City of London. When complete in 2008, these buildings will provide more than 800,000 square feet of new flexible and efficient office and retail space, an additional 20% of occupier space to that currently available at Broadgate. With sustainable design and construction key to the development brief, 201 Bishopsgate is designed with a planted green roof, and a target of 20% has been set for the use of recycled construction materials. More than 15% of the workforce is from the local area. Constructed on a substantial steel and concrete raft over the railway lines leading into Liverpool Street Station, the 165-metre-high Broadgate Tower is supported by a five-storey A-frame, creating a covered sky-lit galleria. This will provide a large public space landscaped with trees, in keeping with the aim to create spaces of the highest calibre within Broadgate. Clad in stainless steel and glass, the development will provide a fitting landmark for the City of London.
