Amazing render!

Any chance we could see Heron and 100 Bishopsgate included? Both sites are highly visible in that view.

posted this in the London forum last weekend, but an update on demolition of the current building.



starting to strip back the cladding on the northwest corner. Scaffolding and plastic sheeting extends halfway up:


monthly update bulletin from the developers, and the most informative!

If Heron were in it (between and just behind Tower 42 and Bishopsgate) it would be even more

Absolutely stunning...imagine how the people on the streets not knowing what is going on must be feeling!

Should look even more extraordinary as the demolition progresses!

Am i right in thinking there is going to be a large hole in the ground for quite a long time after demolition is complete, whilst BL decide finally wether or not to build the tower, or chicken out and build yet another bland mid rise?...

In other words, this demolition dosent actually mean the tower is a given?.

I don't know what's special at this builiding... Even if it's finished, it could never come close to the Gherkin. It's nearly as ugly as its old surrounding highrises/scrapers, sorry, but it's simply junk.

It is the same story in the City. The developers of Leadenhall, Bishopsgate and Heron have exchanged contracts to build the substructure. However not a single contract has yet been signed to build the superstructure. In other words, not a single skyscraper in London is confirmed to start. That's the reality that many forumers here disagree with.

@ erbsenzaehler

apparently it's in the detail - the facade 'n stuff ...

I agree with the above two comments. The Leadenall Building is a masterpiece. I especially like it as it's individual and will stand out in terms of shape and design. Love it.
