200 Aldersgate is a 434,005 sq ft office building in the City of London.[1]

Completed in 1992, the building was the headquarters of legal firm Clifford Chance before it moved to Canary Wharf.[2] It was extensively redeveloped by Helical Bar in 2010, in conjunction with architects Morey Smith. The refurbishment included two large new reception and lobby areas, a cycle store for 220 bicycles with shower and changing facilities and, on the first floor, a new business lounge and café linking the two parts of the building.[3]

In 2013, 200 Aldersgate was purchased by AshbyCapital, the real estate investment advisory firm.[4] AshbyCapital's other investments include The Colmore Building in Birmingham.[5] 200 Aldersgate is recognisable by the neon artworks in its front windows. Measuring 2.5m in diameter, 'Revolution - in two parts' by Rob and Nick Carter, was commissioned by 200 Aldersgate in 2010.[6]

200 Aldersgate is also known as one of three landmarks forming Stand Up To Cancer's London 3 Peaks Challenge. In 2014, 400 participants in the first ever challenge scaled The Gherkin and Heron Tower, before abseiling 56 metres down the outside of 200 Aldersgate.[7]
