- 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
- 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.
