The site was auctioned for £10m more than the asking price of £20m as 20 bidders rivalled for the property.

The offices will be torn down for the development of 52 one-bedroom flats worth £800,000 each and 24 two-bedroom apartments worth £1.3m each.

Residential apartments are a rare development for Square Mile, which is predominately occupied by offices.
