it was the building that floored the previous development which had planned to demolish it. A local campaign managed to get the shoreditch high street conservation area extended to include this building which sits out in the hinterlands.

I walk down Whitehall every day on my way to work and certainly do not agree that they are dirty or decaying, in fact I think they look pretty good. Anyway the old war office building has just been cleaned and looks as good now as I would imagine it looked when first built. Other buildings too have recently been cleaned such as at horseguards and others in Whitehall recently. But even 'dirty' they look a lot better than a lot of the modern crap, give me a grubby Georgian/Victorian building over a clean 60's building, any day......
