When showing off a city as a possible place to invest in, you need a nice office space to educate the guests, and it helps to have something pretty to show them.
Such as a large scale model of the City of London, complete with computer displays that control which buildings light up and when.
Although not a big physically or in scale as the massive model of central London at the Building Centre, it is a lot more polished and points out in varying degrees of detail every building within the Square Mile.
Also, unlike the Building Center, it is not generally open to the public – although you can ask for a tour – it was open for the London Open House Weekend, and I erm, just remembered to upload the photos.
A chap from the model makers was giving talks to bystanders, and is probably the first person I have met to have said that he likes One New Change place, a building I loathe.
The model he helped build though, is very nice.
