55 Broadway is a Grade I listed building overlooking St James's Park in London. It was designed by Charles Holden and built between 1927 and 1929; in 1931 the building earned him the RIBA London Architecture Medal.
It was constructed as a new headquarters for the Underground Electric Railways Company of London (UERL), the main forerunner of London Underground. Upon completion, it was the tallest office block in the city.


London Underground was due to vacate the building in 2015 for new headquarters in the Olympic Park, Stratford, London, and 55 Broadway was to be converted for residential use, but this planning permission expired in 2018.


On 16 September 2019, it was announced that Integrity International Group, founded by Tony Matharu, had acquired the 55 Broadway site from Transport for London.
