The building comprises 135 basement parking spaces, 100,000ft2 of office accommodation across the lower five floors and and 90,000ft2 of office accommodation across the upper seven floors of the two towers. The towers were initially designed for residential use (104no. apartments).
Planning permission was granted for Lanyon Plaza in April 2007 and construction commenced in August 2007. Piling and basement works were completed by spring 2008 and by June 2008 the building was at ground floor level. By the end of summer 2008 the concrete frame of the building was completed and preparations were being made for the glazing to be installed. Construction of the two towers began in autumn 2008 and the concrete frame of the two towers was fully completed by April 2009. At this stage the glazing to the main building was substantially complete except for the basement / ground floor level. Glazing of the two towers commenced by the end of summer 2009 and was completed by the end of 2009.
Construction work ceased on site from January 2010 until June 2013 when it was announced that the National Asset Management Agency (NAMA) would provide £15m to complete the The Soloist and Lanyon Plaza buildings.
In July 2013 it was announced that Land & Property Service (previously based at the Lincoln Building, Great Victoria Street) would occupy the entire office element of Lanyon Plaza.
