Demolition Starts At Ropemaker Place

The planned Gensler Associates designed tower for 24 Ropemaker Street in the City of London looks like going ahead following the beginning of the demolition of the tower.

The 24 floor neighbour to Citypoint is being developed by DB Real Estate Investment GmBH, which will be their first major project to hit the skyline in London.

The 93m tall blue glass tower looks like being the latest medium rise to start construction in the City after a slow period at the nadir of the property cycle, recent months have seen Royex House, the Willis Building on Lime Street and 1 Commercial Street have all recently started.

The site was previously the location of a planned 200 metre tall tilting tower by Sheppard Robson which was withdrawn. Despite approval, this current design was criticised by the Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone for being too short.
