Plans for the 1 Undershaft,
the tallest skyscraper in the City of London have been unveiled. Designed by Architect
Eric Parry, the building will rise 309.6m in the heart of the city’s financial
district, between the Cheesegrater and the Gherkin.
. “It is the last piece
in the jigsaw. At the higher level of buildings, this is really the endgame, I
don’t think there’s more coming on this scale.”
Says Parry.
The building will contain 73 and will accommodate 10,000 people, 1,500
bicycle spaces.
The top of the tower will have a restaurant and a viewing gallery,
promised to be open to all for free.

A planning application will be submitted in January 2016
