This is a Grade II listed building, first listed in the 1970’s.

Previously warehouse, the building is now office space. Built in the 1860s, restored and interior rebuilt late 20th Century. By W Snooke and H Stock. Yellow brick with stucco and artificial stone dressings, 20th Century roof extensions above cornice.

The building comprises 4 storeys (ground floor including recent mezzanine level) and attic, 3 bays. Altered ground floor has tall, segmental-headed openings with keystones now filled in at top to form mezzanine level, open below as walkway. Stucco banded rustication to this level. Slightly recessed rounded corner angles. Upper 3 floors articulated by colossal round-arched recesses with architraves and keystones supporting cornice and resting on blocking course above cornice to ground floor; moulded string at spring. 1st and 2nd floor segmental-headed windows in inner, segmental-arched recess. 3rd floor round-headed windows in round-arched recesses have moulded sills inside recesses continuing as plain band outside. Similarly treated 5-bay returns. The last remaining warehouse building of former Cotton’s Wharf. Cotton’s was almost entirely destroyed in the fire of Tooley Street (1861) and was immediately rebuilt. It was converted into a coldstore in the 1880s by the proprietors of adjacent Hay’s Wharf. Late C20 buildings have replaced the other buildings on the site.
