Cardinal Place is a retail and office development in London SW1 near Victoria Station and opposite Westminster Cathedral. The site consists of three buildings covering over a million square feet on Victoria Street next door to Portland House, and was designed by EPR Architects and built by Robert McAlpine.

The topping out ceremony was held in December 2004, and performed by Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, Lord McAlpine, and Ian J. Henderson, outgoing chief executive of the site's developers Land Securities.

 

The £200m development was built directly over the District & Circle Line Underground tunnels which actually pass through the basement. The buildings rest on rubber shock absorbers to prevent vibrations from the passing trains. The project includes 550,000 square feet (51,000 m2) of office space and 100,000 square feet (9,300 m2) of retail, primarily occupied by Marks & Spencer.

 

Microsoft UK currently occupy floor 1 of the building, floor 6 is occupied by Experian. Floor 7 is occupied by Kazakhstan's company Kazakhmys.
