The 47-storey skyscraper, nicknamed the Cheesegrater, is rapidly approaching completion and became the tallest building in the City of London, overtaking KPF’s 43-storey Heron Tower last summer.

Containing 57,000m² of office space, the tower has been under construction since early 2011 and is scheduled for completion later this year.

The building is one of three new towers currently under construction in the City of London.

The AJ/Observer Skyline Campaign

The campaign aims to ensure the capital’s future skyscrapers are built in the right place and designed to the highest quality.

It has been backed by architects including David Chipperfield, David Adjaye, Eva Jiricna and Ted Cullinan.
