NOTES: The original scheme was for a major refurbishment of Sotheby & Co's premises at 33-36 New Bond Street and 3-7 St George Street in 1972, which was abandoned in 1976, owing to planning restrictions on the development of listed buildings and the difficulties of Sotheby's finding alternative accommodation during rebuilding. In 1979 Sotheby's acquired the Aeolian Hall at 135-137 New Bond Street and 40-42 Bourdon Street. Denys Lasdun & Partners, later (from 1977) Denys Lasdun Redhouse & Softley, were retained for the second scheme, a refurbishment of the Aeolian Hall, which was completed in 1981.
