Property Week reports that the rent on these offices is over half a million pounds a year. This is all paid for by the Quartet on the Middle East - the United States of America, the Russian Federation, the United Nations and the European Union, for whom Tony Blair acts as a Special Envoy mostly to Israel and Palestine, as well as a base for his Faith and Sports Charitable Foundations, and Corporate Directorships etc.

Note the large array of various types of radio antennas on the roof.

There is a permanent Free Tibet demonstration in support of the occupied and oppressed country of Tibet (which was invaded by Communist China in 1950) , on the other side of Portland Place, outside the the Royal Institute of British Architects.

The Free Tibet campaign has been subjected to Chinese "cyber warfare" over the years.
