Does anyone know the sq footage of this and how many people are expected to work there?

Are UBS moving in all their city employees from UBS GAM down near Bank as well as the bank? Guessing the wealth guys in Mayfair will stay there.

It looks like a futuristic set that was thrown together at the last minute in an 80's sci-fi episodic.

Employees will benefit a lot from the natural light. They should be happy.
