The News Building (London)
The News Building is a 17-storey office block in the London Bridge area of London that forms part of the Shard Quarter development. It houses all of News UK's London operations, including The Times, The Sunday Times, The Sun, The Wall Street Journal, Dow Jones and HarperCollins. It was designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano, who also designed The Shard across the piazza, and was financed by Qatar, which is behind the Shard Quarter development.
The News Building was known as The Place and The Baby Shard until 2014, when its name was changed. It was built on the site of the demolished New London Bridge House, designed by Richard Seifert, and was completed in 2013. At its base is a new station that is part of London Bridge bus station.
