Architect Pei Cobb Freed & Partners

1 Cabot Square (also known as the Credit Suisse building) is a 21 floor office building occupied by Credit Suisse in the Canary Wharf development in London, England. Original plans called for a skyscraper on this site for CSFB, however the slump at the end of the 1980s saw these plans scaled back.

The architect on the project was Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, and the building was completed in 1991. It is 89 metres tall with a floorspace of 50,166 square metres. The building has large, open plates on the floor that range in size from 64,500 square foot to 24,000 square foot in the executive offices.[2] It is internally connected to the west, to 20 Columbus Courtyard, which is also connected to a full-height internal link to the north, 17 Columbus Courtyard.[2]
