Old and New Architecture

One New Change is a shopping centre located on Cheapside in the City of London. Historically Cheapside was a hub of commerce and industry. During the 12th century markets developed in surrounding streets such as Wood Street, Bread Street, Milk Street, Honey Lane, Poultry and Friday Street. Then later in the 17th century, coffeehouses started flourishing in the city. 

The development of One New Change completed in 2012. It is considered one of the largest retail spaces in central London with a combination of shops, restaurants and bars covering three floors. The roof terrace provides an uninterrupted view of St Paul's Cathedral and the view from here is amazing in the evening when the city lights are on. 

The image below shows one of my favourite views of St Paul's Cathedral from the ground floor of One New Change. I love the juxtaposition of old and new architecture of the City of London. I love how the glass buildings of One New Change frame the dome of St Paul's Cathedral.
