A landmark, sustainable office tower in the heart of London’s financial district.

The Scalpel is a 675-feet tall landmark office tower built on a freehold site of about 0.31 hectares. It is strategically located at the junction of Lime Street and Leadenhall Street, adjacent to The Lloyd’s of London, deemed to be the heart of London’s insurance district. The property enjoys excellent transport links, which have been enhanced since the opening of the Elizabeth Line connecting through to Liverpool Street from May 2022.

Notably known as “The Scalpel” because of its sleek and geometrical intersecting reflective planes, it was designed by world renowned architectural firm KPF and completed in early 2019. From the outset, sustainability was a key pillar in the design of The Scalpel, with the building achieving a classification of BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) “Excellent” – New Construction and an Energy Performance Certificate rating of B.

The Scalpel has approximately 406,000 square feet of best-in-class Grade A office space spread over 36 storeys and three retail units at ground and basement levels. It offers flexible and efficient floor plates ranging from 6,600 square feet to 15,800 square feet. Pedestrian access to the building is via an impressive and prominent double-height reception entrance.
