Viñoly's revised Walkie Talkie tower granted planning permission

  • Comment

Planning permission has been granted for Rafael Viñoly’s controversial ‘Walkie Talkie’ tower at 20 Fenchurch Street, central London

The City of London approved a modified version of the building, which had been given permission in its original form in 2007, at a meeting on 5 May.

It is the latest stage in the long-running saga for the Land Securities project. In 2007, the 155 metre-tall building was called in by the then secretary of state Ruth Kelly despite receiving the go-ahead from the City Corporation, CABE and the Greater London Authority.

CABE gave its full backing to the scheme after Vinoly chopped nine storeys from the original design.
