London’s skyline is set to witness another change as advance works this week got underway on the multi-million pound Leadenhall building.
Construction on the 47-storey building, set to stand at 224m high, is due for completion in 2014. The main contractor has yet to be appointed.
The Leadenhall building has already got the nickname of “the cheese grater” due to its wedge shaped appearance. It was designed by Rodger Stirk Harbour & Partners and will cost £340M with the costs being split between British Land and Oxford Properties of North America.
The floors start at 1,950m² at the bottom and finish at 557m² on the top floor making up a floor space total of 56,670m² of floor space.
