First Look at Leadenhall Building

Here's a look at the stunning proposed Richard Rogers tower for the City of London at 122 Leadenhall Street.

The skyscraper which looks set to tower above the City skyline will be 736ft / 225m tall. Standing on stilts above a public garden, it will contain glass lifts shooting up and down the north elevation from tip to toe. Commissioned by British Land it will stand literally next door to Lloyds of London giving daunting views looking up Leadenhall Street.

Already dubbed the 'cheese grater', the building will be clad in a mixture of glass and Rogers signature stainless steel, providing a welcome change from the increasing amount of light glass buildings proposed for the City skyline. An application is expected to be filed in 2004 with construction not starting before 2005 at the earliest.
