22 Bishopsgate | 278M | 62 FLOORS | U/C

100 Bishopsgate | 172M | 38 FLOORS | U/C



The core for 22BG is now at floor 21 from what is visible beneath the core formwork. 100 Bishopsgate is also rising further down the road currently at floor 22 beneath the formwork creating an immensely dense canyon.


Taken by me from over the weekend:

Hard to be sure at this early stage but the first impression I get of the Principal Tower cladding is that it is top quality. Looks superb. Hopefully it's an accurate first impression because this design deserves great cladding. Of the high rise buildings currently under construction in London, only One Blackfriars tops this for aesthetics, IMO.

^We just need to see the curved railings on the corner, but it is safe to say that this one has amazing cladding!

I have a feeling that Newfoundland will rival it, but Principal Tower is stunning aesthetically.

At the start of this video, you see very gloomy looking London. I bet the views from this building aren't as gloomy today. You will be able to see the fosters towers from it soon i reckon.

Filmed form this tower I think
