A bold thinking destination needs a Big Team. As the biggest development here for 25 years, 245 Hammersmith is a groundbreaking new joint development venture between Legal & General and Mitsubishi Estate. We’re big on track record. The Legal & General team has already delivered big with Central St Giles and Paternoster Square.
“245 Hammersmith Road will be much more than just an office building; we are creating a destination with modern working and lifestyle trends at the core of our thinking. It will set a new standard for Hammersmith.”

As one of the most exciting City developments, Paternoster Square in the City of London is set over 70,000m², offering office space, retail outlets and cafés and a vibrant square in the shadow of London’s iconic St. Paul’s Cathedral. It restores the lines of the ancient streets surrounding the square - and reclaims the public open space of the square itself as a place for year-round events.
Central Saint Giles
The £450m development links four of central London’s best-loved destinations; Bloomsbury, Covent Garden, Soho, and Fitzrovia. It’s also one of the largest, designed by Renzo Piano as a colourful mixed-use development, including retail, residential, and an outdoor Plaza – the office building occupied by some of the world’s leading media companies.
