Transport for London (TfL) is to sell its Grade I-listed former headquarters at 55 Broadway, according to Architects Journal.

Designed by Charles Holden, 55 Broadway was the tallest office block in London when completed in 1929 and has been described as London’s first skyscraper.

TateHindle had won planning permission in June 2015 to create 77 apartments and 1,308m² of office space within the building.

TfL director of commercial development, Graeme Craig, said: “As part of our wider estate management strategy we are seeking to reduce our office accommodation costs, especially in central London.

We have specifically examined the options for the office buildings complex at 55 Broadway, including 100 Petty France and Wing-over-Station, and seek to dispose of these by offering a long single leasehold to the open market to deliver best value for money.”
