The Leadenhall Building Go-Ahead

22/05/2007

Underlining its confidence in London as the world’s leading international financial and
business centre, British Land said today that its Board has formally decided to press ahead
with construction of the Leadenhall Building, its 224m (736 ft) new tower in London, EC3.


The stunning 47 storey building (612,000 sq ft), set to be one of the tallest in the City of London, is part of British Land's £4 billion
development programme which also includes the new 35 storey Broadgate Tower and 201 Bishopsgate developments in the City.

Stephen Hester, Chief Executive, British Land, said: "We are confident about London’s future and its continued renaissance as the
premier international business centre in the world. We believe the Leadenhall Building to be clearly the best of the new generation
of City towers and expect it to attract strong interest from prospective occupiers. Our customer led strategies are delivering
high levels of letting activity elsewhere, most notably all of 201 Bishopsgate and 40 per cent of the adjoining Broadgate Tower is now
let or under offer, underpinning our confidence in the appeal of our buildings."

Demolition on the existing site is well underway and the Leadenhall Building is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2011 with
construction costs circa £286 million.

Good news, love watching this demolition, so random, who would've thought that you could knock a building down from the bottom upwards.

Is it me or do skyscrapers in London get the highest quality renders of any in the world?? these pics are stunning, maybe the extended approval time in london leaves the developers sat round for years making prettier and prettier pictures.

The entrance from ground-level looks very similar to the HSBC Tower in HK, don't you think?

That's not a bad thing.

Woah these are some suuuuper renders too! Can't wait for this one.
