Broadgate is a large, 32-acre (13 ha) office and retail estate in the City of London, owned by British Land and GIC and managed by Broadgate Estates.
The estate is in part of the eastern City fringe, outside the line of the now lost defensive walls, and east of the former Moorfields, that is often described as part of the East End of London.


The original developer was Rosehaugh: it was built by a Bovis / Tarmac Construction joint venture and was the largest office development in London until the arrival of Canary Wharf in the early 1990s. The original scheme was designed by Arup Associates, Team 2, which was headed by Peter Foggo, who later left Arup to set up his own practice Peter Foggo Associates, where he completed the initial phase of works.


Broadgate Circle is a civic space at the heart of the Broadgate Estate. The Circle was part of the original design by Arup Associates and was redesigned by the group, now called Arup Architecture, in 2015. The key colonnade structure, formed of 54 travertine columns, was maintained and the retail spaces and amphitheatre were modernised and made more accessible. Throughout the year the space is used for a wide range of activities.

  • Early Nineties developed open space with fountain suspended over Liverpool Station’s rail-lines and surrounded by an aggregate of post 1980’s commercial buildings excepting the simple 19th.Century train shed fringed in wooden barge-boards. The elegant ‘bridged’ Exchange House (1990) on the northern side again effortlessly spanning the railway-lines, surely counts amongst London’s most innovative and accomplished modern buildings. Purposed spot to undo the knot+top button, let it all hang out - just like the Broadgate Venus do.
  • Great atmosphere with lots of steps to sit on and a beautiful water fountain. Great place for winter events such as ice skating and summer events such as sense of space. Pictures of sense of space added below! Four rooms, each with a unique feel of the space around it. My favourite was definitely the doddle room!
