Notes NOTES: The National Westminster Bank (NatWest) Tower in Old Broad Street, was designed by R. Siefert & Partners. Completed in 1981, it remained the tallest building in the City of London until the erection of the nearby Heron Tower in 2009. Badly damaged in the Bishopsgate bombing of 1993, the tower was subsequently entirely reclad and refurbished internally and renamed Tower 42. The Lloyd's building, Lime Street, was designed by Richard Rogers Partnership and completed in 1986.
