War Office building to be sold to raise £100 million (UK)

The British Ministry of Defense announced that the iconic War Office building in London is up for sale. The sale of the building is expected to raise more than £100 million for the public coffers.

The building, construction of which started in 1901 and completed five years later, held a very important role during the First and the Second World War acting as headquarters for military leaders such as Winston Churchill and David Lloyd George.

Today the building is still occupied by civil servants who will be moved across the road to the Ministry of Defense’s main building during next year.

With more than 1,000 rooms and 2.5 miles of corridors the building is most likely to attract property developers and hotel chains.
