Rogers' Cheesegrater becomes tallest building in the City

  • Comment

Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners’ Leadenhall Building was topped out by Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, yesterday

The 47-storey skyscraper, which stands opposite the Lloyds Building, has become the tallest building in the City of London, overtaking KPF’s 43-storey Heron Tower.

Containing 57,000m² of office space, the tower has been under construction since early 2011 and is scheduled for completion in summer 2014.

Graham Stirk, senior partner at Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners said ‘We’re very proud of this moment in the project’s history and contributing to what is the product of all the hard work from thousands of people. This effort is reflected in the very fabric of the building.

‘All aspects of the construction are beautifully celebrated in the design to form a dramatic architectural expression which will become even more evident on completion in a year’s time.’
