8 Canada Square
Canary Wharf, London

Height: 200m
Built: 1999-2002
Architect: Foster & Partners

2nd tallest building in the United Kingdom, and my favourite tower in the Docklands. The cladding is superb!

I think Sultan's question is How old is the bank not the building...Headquartered in London the HSBC Group is named after The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited, which was established 1865 in Hong Kong, today HSBC Group is the world's second largest bank by market value next to Citigroup.

that's Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation. you can refer to the corporate history in hsbc.co.uk.

it's hq-ed in hong kong for almost a hundred years but was moved to london after the aquisition of the midland bank. still right now, hong kong contributes 30% of the annual revenue of the group.

Started by a Scotsman, with a board formed from a majority of those who are British and was and is essentially a British outfit in Hong Kong. Hong Kong now contributes in earnings: 25.2% towards the group
