Victorious Victoria This was our golden summer. A time of jubilation, celebration, collaboration and exhilaration. This was London in 2012. This was our Victoria.

Jubilant Jubilee She reigns. It rains. Waterproof trousers and a cagoule, on a typically British summer’s day. Everyone had a right royal time though, with the streets of Victoria populated by thousands of Queens and Prince Philips. Nothing could dampen our Jubilee spirits.

Taste of success Great big wedges of cheese. All manners of bread. Every kind of deliciousness. Every week, Cardinal Place, Strutton Ground and Pimlico markets erupt with colour, life, hustle and bustle. Locals rub shoulders with workers and tourists. You can’t get a more everyday celebration of real life than this.

25


Roll up, roll up to foodie heaven.


34

Raise a glass In the midst of the nations celebration, Land Securities provided Victoria with other reasons to celebrate. Whether it was the launch of 123 Victoria Street and its parkour athletes, or the cranes at 62 Buckingham Gate completing its beautiful faรงade, the summer of 2012 changed the face of Victoria for ever.

35


1…2…3… A sensational building. A sensational launch.


Striking. That’s one word for it. 62 Buckingham Gate sets the tone for the future of Victoria.


42

To the max Rep after rep, set after set. Strive for progress, not for perfection. Know your limits then blow them away. When you can’t do one more rep, that’s when you’ve succeeded. Healthy happy you.

You’re here to do something you couldn’t do last week. Next week, you’ll do something you couldn’t do this week.


54

Going for Gold The streets thronged. The people roared. Team GB brought a nation together. Victorious in winning. Courageous in defeat. Sofas of Britain have never witnessed such excitement. Neither have the streets of Victoria this century.

185 medals won at the Olympic and Paralympic Games. That’s reason enough to blow our own trumpet.

Encore, encore The buzz. The expectation. As the curtain opens, the world is shut out. Yet the excitement isn’t just about the performance. After all, it’s not everyday that London gets a new theatre and bar and brasserie. This is what ovations are made for.

Nothing but nothing draws you in like live theatre. Heart meets art.

Land Securities in Victoria Victoria is undergoing an exciting period of transformation. Land Securities are creating new shops, offices and homes. There will be more open spaces and the bold and modern will sit comfortably next to the historic and distinguished. Victoria will overflow with creativity as new businesses join the existing creative heart that thrives here. At Land Securities we believe a place is defined by its people. We are creating a vibrant new destination for Londoners to enjoy, people from across the world to visit and somewhere that businesses and individuals are proud to call home. Together we’ll create a Victoria that will be a stylish place to work, live and enjoy.
