Arup Associates-designed scheme for UBS’ London HQ site

British Land tower

British Land has unveiled plans to replace Swiss bank UBS’ London headquarters in the Square Mile with an office complex including a 32-storey tower.

The scheme at 2 and 3 Finsbury Avenue Square is designed by Arup Associates and would provide 550,000 sq ft of office space across four buildings. A public exhibition began yesterday and British Land expects to submit a planning application early next year.

UBS is vacating the site to move into the Make-designed and Mace-built 5 Broadgate groundscraper next door.
