    The building’s distinctive woven cladding pattern creates a distinctive façade with the overlapping masonry ‘ribbons’ colour-matched to the Portland Stone of the adjacent buildings.

    With planning consent in place, the building is due for completion in 2017, with HSBC to take occupancy in 2018.
