5 Broadgate is the headquarters for the Union Bank of Switzerland UBS housing office and trading floors in the City of London EC2.
The 12-storey office building designed by MAKE architects provides over 700,000 sq ft (66,890 sq m) of new space.
Buildings at 4 and 6 Broadgate were demolished to make way for the new building that is occupied by Swiss bank UBS (committed to the building until 2035).
