The Stock Exchange is the grey/brown concrete midrise in front of Tower 42 in this photo:







... and it's getting a shiny new reclad like this:






The actual operations of the Stock Exchange were recently moved to Paternoster Square though.

People saying they should of knocked it down and build something there.


Yeah, fine....but it'll be 10 years before we actually see something there.

Claddings looks nice, but the shape is still crap.

Hope they put something old fashioned or at least sympathetic in the corner between those two neo-classical buildings.
