Vintners Place, Upper Thames Street, Queenhithe, London, 30/06/1992. A view from an upper window at the south end of the galleria looking out across the open atrium during construction at Vintners Place. Laing undertook the £79m management contract for the construction of a 37,000sqm high quality office development at Vintners Place between March 1989 and December 1992. Work on site began in June 1989 with the demolition of 10 buildings including Vintry House and Kennet Wharf on the riverside. The listed façade of Thames House along Queen Street Place was preserved and incorporated into the development. The project was the first within the City of London in modern times permitted to reclaim land from the Thames foreshore for its riverside facade.
