225 meteres of pure beauty, it will add to to her (Londons) ever growing skyline.

*ahem*

I, erm... got my information from JGG in the UK forum.

Apparently the Leadenhall site ISN'T under demolition yet (though it will be in early January).

The building he saw undergoing demolition was Crosby Court, which is the main building on the Bishopsgate Tower site. We already knew about the smaller building starting demolition, but this is the main building he's talking about. It's literally next door to the Leadenhall site. Now all we need is confirmation of the tower's funding and this project will be officially underway.

A quick rendering I did yesterday. This shows the view from Tower Bridge/City Hall. The Willis Building is also shown with cladding -

My favourite proposed skyscraper in London, AND it has a decent nickname. What more could you want?

This was a rendering created by UK forumer "Danger Mouse".






Leadenhall is facing the wrong way.

I can barely see swiss re in that photo, so will 122 Lh totally obscure the view of the Gherkin, I know it's facing the wrong way in that rendering but I've seen some where the views are blocked by bigger planned city scrapers.

Swiss Re will still be visible from nearly every other angle.
