5 Aldermanbury Square is an eighteen-storey replacement for Royex House, which had occupied the site since 1962. Eric Parry's scheme uses 34-metre deep, rectangular floor plates, with a North-South orientation. In an attempt to reduce the visual mass of the building, two recesses have been introduced, one in each of the North and South elevations. This gives the impression of two slab-like wings linked together. Around the perimeter, columns have been pushed out slightly beyond the building, giving an impression of depth to the elevation; they have been clad in stainless steel. The upper floors step back and the columns and cladding follow this line in a gentle curve or entasis. The Eastern part of the site is incorporated into a new hard landscaping scheme for Aldermanbury Square, also by Parry. A public route under the building follows the line of Addle Street, connecting Wood Street to Aldermanbury Square.
