- The supporting structural core is located to the northern side of the development hosting all lift shafts, toilets and plant machinery within thus maximising the available office space outside it.
- There are two emergency cores located outside the detached main core.
- An extensive canopy on the southern side is utilised to help deal with the down-drafts.
- The extension of the public realm thanks to the enclosed space at the base of the tower will be approximately half an acre. This area will be topped by ceilings 27m above floor level.
- The angle of the wedge shape is such that each subsequent floor is 75cm less on the southern side than the one under it. The primary purpose is to allow it to taper away from St Paul's Cathedral and reduce its profile from protected view points.
- Head of construction at British Land, Richard Elliot, has announced that the tower will begin in 2007 with structural engineer Arup, carrying out wind tunnel testing in 2006 and seeing the design refined.
- The nickname, "the Cheese Grater", was coined by this site in response to the "Gherkin" and "Shard." The original name coined by the British press was "the Thunderbird" which has failed to stick.
