Alternatively, you can watch this on YouTube. However, the quality is much lower -

Amazing video Will. I just thought, would you consider making more? I would love to see other tours!

Absolutely yes. I'll be doing tons more videos. There'll be loads of stuff to film over the next few years. In fact I'm creating a whole new website for this.

That rendering doesn't show the best angle for this tower,but still good anyway.
I can't wait to see this tower built.

That's enough for me Will, flippin exciting stuff and no mistake sir.

By the way great render, but I am starting to worry from that render that the colours will turn out to be exactly the same as Swiss Re, with the dark black striping. Don't get me wrong I didn't want reflective 'Dallas' style' cladding but still.

That render is so badly made i feel like printing it out and wiping my ass with it! Seriously, i dont know if it's just me but 122 Leadenhall looks in the wrong place and Bishopsgate Tower is rendered badly, not to mention it's an old render seeing as Drapers Gardens, the old Willis design and Minerva are still there.

I can see the millennium bridge. barely, but I can see it ...

the future skyline of the city doesn't look as impressive in this picture as from certain points along the river. the city of london skyscraper density certainly won't reach that of other cities, like paris or frankfurt, with these projects alone ...

^ Frankfurts not particularly dense, the City of London skyline will never be as dense as that of La Defence, there are just to many listed buildings in the area to allow that sort of skyline, nor would i particularly want it to be - we have Canary Wharf for that.

When I first saw Bishopsgate closed I thourght that they were removing the bridge today but it seemed to be lifting metal plates on to the roof of a building accross the road.





there were at least two guys with jack hammers, one at each end breaking up the bridge. you can just one of there orange vests.





Almost gone.

Mace on standby for the Pinnacle

Published: 07 May 2008

Mace is waiting in the wings to take on a £500 million deal for the tallest tower in the City of London if Brookfield, formerly known as Multiplex, cannot agree a deal with the client.

Brookfield is said to be in the final stages of putting a price together for the Pinnacle, a 287 m tower on Bishopsgate in the City.

But project sources say that, while developer Arab Investments is keen to work with Brookfield on a guaranteed maximum price deal for the job, it is also holding the open the possibility of using the scheme's project manager Mace under a construction management deal if it cannot agree a price.

Brookfield has been working with Arab Investments since August last year on a pre-construction agreement for the tower. While Mace is project manager, it already has a construction management deal for the basement works on the 63-storey scheme, which it is claimed will be the biggest single commercial building in the City of London.

Belgian steel outfit Victor Buyck has emerged as the lead contender for the steel package on the project, having previously been the steelwork contractor for the nearby Swiss Re tower at 30 St Mary Axe.

If Mace did take over the reins on the scheme it would be the second time that the firm had moved in on a major London tower scheme previously earmarked for Brookfield.

The firm is currently waiting for the completion of demolition of the Southwark Towers above London Bridge before it starts building work on Shard London Bridge, the UK's tallest tower scheme.

Brookfield had previously worked on the London Bridge scheme but walked away in 2006 after client Teighmore decided to open the contract up to competitive tendering.

A spokesman for Arab Investments said it was waiting to receive a price from Brookfield for the Pinnacle deal. Work is due to start on the tower in June for completion by 2011.
