Phase 1, consisting of The Warehouse, a 123,000 sq ft office refurbishment, and The Studio, a new 18,300 sq ft workspace, was completed in 2015 and is fully let to some of the UK's leading creative businesses. Extensive new public realm was also created with three new access routes to a vibrant restaurant destination, set within beautifully landscaped public spaces. The Bower now features several of London's most exciting new food and beverage concepts alongside established local meeting spots such as the iconic Shoreditch Grind.

Phase 2, The Tower, was completed in August 2018. The Tower provides 171,000 sq ft of Grade A office space, on seventeen levels, with two additional ground floor retail units fronting Old Street.
