The tower is dwarfed by the recent Cheesegrater and the soon-to-arrive 22 Bishopsgate.

The building will contain a free public viewing gallery, allowing visitors to look down onto the roof of Leadenhall Market.

Construction will require demolition of this existing Postmodern low-rise building on the corner of Leadenhall Street and Gracechurch Street.

The developer is Brookfield.
