The Offices of the Church Commissioners, Great College Street, Central London


A grade-II* listed and very grand block of offices occupies much of the land between Little College Street and Millbank. Built at the turn of the twentieth century from red brick with lavish Portland stone dressings and slate roofs, the block is described (in the listing) as "an eclectic yet sophisticated Free Style northern Renaissance design." Designed by W.D. Caroe, the Church Commissioners building has six stories and corner towers with pyramidal roofs.
