Notes NOTES: The first Lloyd's building at 12 Leadenhall Street was a neoclassical design by Sir Edwin Cooper in 1928. Due to expansion, a second building was constructed to designs by Terence Heysham in 1950-1957 and became known as the 1958 building. Lloyd's moved again to a new building, designed by Richard Rogers, in 1986. The 1958 building was demolished in 2004 to make way for the Willis Building.
