A London landmark, informally named the 'Cheesegrater' due to it's distinctive wedge shape. The tapered glass façade reveals the building’s steel bracings while its ladder frame emphasises the sharp, vertical appearance of the tower. At the base is a 30m high atrium forming an enclosed public space with shops, cafes and restaurants.

The building’s tapering profile is prompted by a requirement to respect views of St Paul’s Cathedral, in particular from Fleet Street. The tower’s design ensures that from this key vantage point the cathedral’s dome is still framed by a clear expanse of sky.
