It aint a vision, construction starts in 8 months. It will be built without a pre let, it is fully approved, and it is being built by one of the most trusty developers you will meet.

so, no.

Counting the months

As it's a British Land project, I expect we can watch this beauty on the webcams as well

It will be suprisingly fast when u/c. This is because as the building tapers there is less and less to contsruct!

There's no lift core so it'll be like Broadgate Tower, all steel.

There's a long interview with Richard Elliot, Head of Construction for British Land, in the April issue of NSC (New Steel Construction).

So, er... you can't get a more reliable source than that

This is Leadenhall Street btw, and the current building can be seen at the end -










The neighbouring St Helens Square, with Tower 42 visible -






A 500 year old church, opposite the building -






Aviva Tower and 30 St Mary Axe -

Next year, The current site is demolished in January, so it should probably start actual construction in less than 1 year
