That is indeed expensive as hell, but your MP's are worth every penny!
I took photos of that building while in London in Dec, and wondered what the use was. Great location.

But just to clarify Freedom Tower will be much more expensive than this on a gross basis, as the PA now expect it to hit near $3.0 billion. Goldman Sachs' new headquarters across the way is over $2 billion. See
Now on a per sq foot basis, no doubt the MP's place is way, way higher than FT.
