Southwark Towers, London

Southwark Towers was a mid rise building at 32 London Bridge Street, designed by tp bennett architects, overlooking London Bridge station, in Southwark, London. It was 100 metres tall and had 25 floors[1] in three wings. Completed in 1976, it has been demolished to make way for The Shard, which at 310 meters will be the tallest building in the United Kingdom when completed in 2012.

The building was formerly occupied by PricewaterhouseCoopers. Despite a modern-looking and lavish reception area, the building and its decorations became dated. Lifts in the building were slow and struggled to cope with traffic during peak hours. Nevertheless, some wings of the upper floors enjoyed spectacular views of Tower Bridge and the City. The building's tenants have now moved to nearby sites in Union Street and Hay's Galleria.
