Built in 1936–8 by the builders John Laing & Son Ltd, and designed by Culpin & Son the building was constructed in Red brick and called Wigton House, it was occupied for manufacturing and warehousing by a variety of companies including Scholl the foot ware company, a brand started by podiatrist William Mathias Scholl in 1906.

In the late 1990s Wigton House was converted to apartments by Warner Lofts and renamed 'The Paramount Building'. The building was glamorised with white painted render and glass balconies while the top three floors have spectacular roof terraces with Skyline views of most well-known London Landmarks. It now houses 32 outstanding 1, 2 and 3 bedroom loft apartments with most having secure underground parking.

The office space is located on the ground floor and benefits from a generous frontage along the majority of the main elevation to St John Street. It also has a frontage to the rear at Agdon Street.

The offices are being completely overhauled and is currently under refurbishment to include; new air-conditioning, lighting, WCs, flooring, skylights and redecoration.

Possession immediately available.

There is also an apartment on 3rd floor that our client previously used for their offices, but technically it holds a residential use.

The offices and apartment do not need to lease both together, but this can be done if required.

The Paramount Building is situated on St John Street north of Clerkenwell Road between Angel Islington and Smithfield Market with direct access to all local vibrant bars and restaurants.

The location offers excellent access to the City and West End via local transport links from Farringdon, Angel and Barbican Underground / National Rail Stations.
