Compelling Stories Have Always Been Told Here

Unveiled in 1939 as the headquarters of the Daily Express – the world’s most popular newspaper at the time – the building caused an instant stir.
Pioneering architect Sir Owen Williams went for the radical ‘streamline moderne’ style. Eight decades on, the building still looks futuristic.
Bustle and Brilliance
For 50 years there were newsrooms on the upper floors, presses in the basement. The noise and bustle was ceaseless - because, of course, 'the news never sleeps'.
In 1974 the Express Building was granted Grade II-listed status – extremely rare for such a ‘young’ building.
The Daily Express vacated in 1989. The printing presses went in 1992, when the building was converted into offices.
This local landmark has laid scandalously vacant in recent years. Time for noise, bustle and brilliance to happen here once again.

Express Building and Huckletree is a combination like no other.
