- The ground and first floor contain a suite of conference, meeting and event spaces including a 232 seat auditorium that are all are available for private hire.
- The top floor of the building is illuminated in green at night. However, every hour, it cross fades to purple for a minute, then goes back to green.
- In a recent Citigroup recruitment advert, there is a photo of Canary Wharf containing the Citigroup Centre and 25 Bank Street - the photo was edited by Citigroup to make it appear that 25 Bank Street is only four storeys tall.
