Notes:
British Land announced they would build this skyscraper, the Broadgate Tower, speculatively (i.e. without a pre-let). It will stand
on the northern edge of the City, quite far from the main cluster but still in a prominent location next to the Broadgate Complex.
Along with the adjoining 63m building, 201 Bishopsgate, it will contain a vast amount of floorspace, over 850,000 sq ft.
The tower is scheduled for topping out in April 2007, with completion in May 2008. Its smaller neighbour 201 Bishopsgate
will be complete in February 2008.


Current Status: Under Construction!

I was up in Vertigo bar (Tower 42) last night. Broadgate Tower looks slim from that angle, but not tall. Tried taking pics but combination of camera phone, tinted glass and bad weather mean nothing worth posting.
