    BuckleyGrayYeoman has undertaken a dramatic repositioning of the 412,000 sqft 1980s City icon, located in the heart of the City of London's sore financial district. The Minster Building provides high quality commercial space with an emphasos on work/life balance. Early retail and leisure lettings at the building include The Third Space, which will open its first luxury health club in the square mile; Brewdog, which will open the first of its new Brewpub concept - featuring a 10 hectolitre brewing facility; and Crussh, which will operate the building's in-house juice bar at the building entrance on the corner of Mincing Lane and Great Tower Street.

    At the heart of the building is a dramatic eight storey atrium, 70 metres high and 18 meatres in diameter, which floods the interior with natural light. This new atrium sets the tone and material palette for the rest of the development, with curved glazing, textured jesmonite panels, marble and bronze combining to create an opulent, airy and uplifting ambiance.
