Willis Building
London, United Kingdom

HEIGHT: 125 metres (410 ft)
FLOORS: 26 floors
COMPLETION: 2008
FLOOR AREA: 475,000 square feet (44,128.9 m2)
ARCHITECT: Norman Foster


http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...ghlight=london

The Willis Building is a skyscraper located at at 51 Lime Street in London's financial centre, the City of London.
Designed by architect Norman Foster and developed by British Land, it stands opposite the Lloyd's building and is 125 metres (410 ft) tall, with 26 storeys. The building features a "stepped" design, which was intended to resemble the shell of a crustacean, with setbacks rising at 97 m (318 ft) and 68 m (223 ft) respectively. In total, there are 475,000 square feet (44,128.9 m2) of office floorspace, most of which was pre-let to the Willis Group, a risk management company and insurance broker.

Constructed between 2004 and 2008 under the management of Mace, the Willis Building was a significant addition to the City of London's skyline, becoming its fourth-tallest building after Tower 42, 30 St. Mary Axe and CityPoint. The core was topped out in July 2006 and the steelwork completed in September that year. Cladding began in July 2006 and the structure was externally completed by June 2007. It was internally fitted out and officially opened in April 2008.

The Willis Building was the first in a wave of new towers planned for the financial area of the City of London. Others include the Bishopsgate Tower, 122 Leadenhall Street, the Heron Tower, 100 Bishopsgate, 20 Fenchurch Street, the Broadgate Tower and Shard London Bridge.

Pan Peninsula
London, United Kingdom

HEIGHT: 147m (East Tower), 122m (West Tower)
FLOORS: 48 floors (East Tower), 38 floors (West Tower)
TYPE: LUXURY RESIDENTIAL TOWER
COMPLETION: 2009
ARCHITECT: Skidmore, Owings and Merrill


http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...ghlight=london

Pan Peninsula, also known as 1 Millharbour, is an exclusive luxury residential development in the Docklands area of London, near South Quay DLR and Canary Wharf Underground stations. Pan Peninsula is one of several new high-rise residential developments that have sprung up due to increased demand for higher living standards in and around Canary Wharf.


Design

Pan Peninsula consists of two towers - the taller one is 147 metres and 48 storeys, surpassing the towers of the Barbican Estate and 13th tallest building in London (as of November 2010). The shorter building is 122 metres and 38 storeys high. The tallest tower was topped-out in September 2007. Both buildings were completed in early 2009, with the first residents moving in. The project was designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill and was developed by Irish property firm Ballymore. The towers are connected by a reception area containing a concierge foyer, multi-floor gym, private cinema and terraced restaurant. The 3rd floor of the West Tower also houses the Six Senses Spa, the first UK location for the internationally renowned day spa and luxury resort operator. The 48th floor of the tallest tower houses the exclusive cocktail bar, the Attic at Pan Peninsula, open to residents and their guests. The tops of the towers have been designed to resemble lanterns, providing strong LED lighting features that are very visible on the skyline and gradually change colour.


Apartments

The towers house mainly two-bedroom, one-bedroom and studio apartments, all containing balconies. The studio apartments are relatively small, containing storage space in the majority of the finished walls, and a fold-up bed that locks into the wall space, creating a dining room environment. Despite this space restriction, the studio apartments have still been sold at £300,000. In 2006, the top penthouse was priced at £10,000,000. The West Tower contains 430 units, while the East Tower houses 356 units. The 25th floor and above in both the West and East towers are more spacious and residents living on these floors also have exclusive access to the Sky Lounge, located on the 48th floor of the East Tower. The Sky Lounge provides a place where residents can relax, hold meetings and conferences, or host events.

Ontario Tower
London, United Kingdom

HEIGHT:104 m (341 ft)
FLOORS: 29 fl
COMPLETION: 2007
ARCHITECT: Skidmore, Owings and Merrill


http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...ghlight=london

The Ontario Tower is a luxury high-rise residential development in London's Docklands. It was built by the Ballymore construction company, as part of a wider scheme in New Providence Wharf to provide new executive housing to meet changing demand in the Docklands area. 'Ontario' was designed by the architects who created landmarks such as Chicago's Willis Tower. The Ontario Tower is a distinct landmark of the London Skyline with its blue LED rimmed elliptical top. The 29-storey project was completed in the Autumn of 2007, and was the tallest building in London solely designed for executive residential use, at 104 metres tall until Ballymore completed The Pan Peninsular just a short distance away on Marsh Wall.

Strata (The Razor)
London, United Kingdom

HEIGHT: 148 meters (486 ft)
FLOORS: 43 floors
COMPLETION: 2010
FLOOR AREA: 306,000 sq ft (28,400 m2)
ARCHITECT: BFLS


http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...ghlight=london

Strata SE1 informally known as The Razor, is a 148-metre, 43 storey, 408 flat skyscraper at Elephant and Castle in the London Borough of Southwark in London, UK. Designed by BFLS (formerly Hamiltons), it is one of the tallest residential buildings in London and will be home to more than 1,000 residents. Strata SE1 is one of the first buildings in the world to incorporate wind turbines within its structure. The three nine-metre wind turbines at the top of the building are rated at 19 kW each and are anticipated to produce 50MWh of electricity per year. The building exceeds by 13% the current UK regulations relating to sustainability. In August 2010, Strata SE1 was awarded the 2010 Carbuncle Cup for Britain's ugliest new building.

One Canada Square
London, United Kingdom

HEIGHT: 240 metres (800 ft)
FLOORS: 50 floors
COMPLETION: 1991
FLOOR AREA: 1,200,000 sq ft (111,000 m2)
ARCHITECTS: César Pelli & Associates, Adamson Associates, Frederick Gibberd Coombes & Partner


http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...4#post83313794

One Canada Square was designed by principal architect Cesar Pelli, who based the design and shape mainly on the World Financial Center in New York City. One of the predominant features of the building is the pyramid roof which contains a flashing aircraft warning light, a rare feature for buildings in the United Kingdom. The distinctive pyramid pinnacle is at 800 feet (240 m) above sea level. One Canada Square is primarily used for offices, though there are some retail units on the lower ground floor. It is a prestigious location for offices and as of May 2011 is around 65% let. The building is recognised as a London landmark and it has gained much attention through film, television and other media because of its status as one of the tallest buildings in the United Kingdom.

The Lloyd's Building
London, United Kingdom

HEIGHT: 96m
FLOORS: 14 floors
COMPLETION: 1986
ARCHITECT: Sir Richard Rogers


The Lloyd’s Building is one of the most famous modern buildings in London. It was completed in 1986. The Lloyd’s Building is located in the most ancient quarter of London. While walking through the neighbouring streets it is already possible to see parts of the glazed facades of the atrium or the service towers wich are clad in stainless steel sandwich paneels. The most important aspect of the design of Lloyd’s Building is flexibility. The building is designed as a series of concentric galleries overlooking a central atrium. All fixed obstructions, i.e. toilets, stairs, entrances, lifts and columns are placed outside the building in six vertical towers.

The building is 12 storeys to the north and steps down to six storeys towards the smale scale buildings to the south, creating a series of terraces at various levels. The twelve glazed lifts are arranged at the outside of the building, inside vertical movement is by a central escalator in the atrium. The servant zones stand freely outside the mass of the building. Concentrating lifts, service risers and toilets into the satellite towers and supporting the main building on external columns gives an uninterrupted space within the enclosing envelope and minimises restrictions on use. The vertical and main horizontal ventilation ducts are run externally for the same reason.
