Row erupts over Economist Building revamp


"The Economist Building was the first air-conditioned office in London" - actually that honour appears to belong to the block on the corner of Charles II Street and Regent St, recently reclad and remodelled but originally by Trehearnes and Leslie C. Norton, and home to the UK Atomic Energy Authority; it was built in 1955-58.
