Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners has announced plans for this astonishing new £300 million tower in the City of London - before the US terrorist attacks. If it gets the go-ahead, the 159m high St Botolph's House will provide 100,000m 2of office space over 36 storeys.

As the AJ went to press, developer Minerva was meeting with CABE to discuss the scheme.

English Heritage has refused to comment on the plans until it has examined them in full. These proposals come as Kohn Pedersen Fox's controversial Heron Tower is about to go to public inquiry.

Andrew Rosenfeld, chief executive of Minerva, said: 'We have got to assume that some people will like it and some people won't like it. We will have to go through the process, justifying what we are doing, as we would with any other scheme. We're not going to be able to build a million square foot of office space within the City of London and have it go unnoticed.'
