J. P. Morgan, Victoria Embankment, London

Date Built
Completed 1991
60 Victoria Embankment
This imposing office block on John Carpenter Street, just off the Victoria Embankment, is home to J. P. Morgan.  The City of London Pevsner describes it as, "... A very long unbroken grey granite block, reminiscent of early C20 American simplified classicism.  Two-storey rusticated base and cornice, upper storey with plain piers and a much deeper cornice. ... Entrance through a lower, part-glazed linking section." (shown above)

Across the street is a near-matching lettable block (see below) that apparently occupies the site of the former City of London School for Girls.

The address of J. P. Morgan is 60 Victoria Embankment because its presence on the Embankment is the former City of London School for Boys (seen in the image below beside Unilever House).  The new J. P. Morgan building is attached to the rear of the old school.
