221 London Circuit. Probably the easiest address to find in Civic, for obvious reasons.

The building was constructed in 1969 as 'Electricity House'. It underwent a name change to 'ACTEW House' in 1992, following the merger of the electricity and water & sewerage utilities in 1988, and then to 'ACTEW AGL House' when ACTEW and the Australian Gas Light Company formed a partnership. That name has relocated elsewhere in the city with the organisation's head office, and the building is now known as '221 London', and even has its own website.

The red sculpture on the left is Choice of Passage, by Phil Spelman.

An impressive building that seems to have recycled with dignity! The number blends well into the building style!
