The Cheesegrater



The Cheesegrater

This is the building being demolished back to front.

Location: 122 Leadenhall, London

Description: This 1969 built Leadenhall building is being demolished from the ground up to make way for The Cheesegrater! The old building is being demolished like this because the floors are suspended by cantilevers from the top. After the floors are removed then the central core will be demolished in the normal way.

Designed by Richard Rogers and developed by British Land, the new tower will be 225 metres (737 feet) tall, with 48 floors, making it the tallest building in the City until the completion of the neighbouring Bishopsgate Tower. With its distinctive wedge-shaped profile, it has been nicknamed the Cheese Grater.
