The Cheesgrater – London’s latest iconic skyline building

The Cheesegrater is set to be London’s new iconic skyscraper.

Much alike the Shard and the Gherkin, this new skyscraper will offer a range of commercial London office space over its 50 storeys.

Sitting at 122 Leadenhall Street, Leadenhall Building or the Cheesegrater as it is becoming better known, is located across from the Lloyd’s building, also designed by the same architect, Richard Rogers.

The 225m skyscraper offers 610,000 sq ft of office space across a series of floors which get smaller as the building tapers upwards.

With its wedge-like shape design, and intricate exterior detailing it is easy to see why the building has received its name.

As with the skyscrapers before it, the full glass lifts which move at a speed of 18mph provide panoramic views of the UK capital.

It is expected that tenants will start moving into office spaces from November onwards. At a cost of £340m to build, office space in the Cheesegrater will come at a premium.

Businesses looking  for office space in the Leadenhall Building can choose from office sizes of 6,900 sq ft up to 17,200 sq ft. All office floors are located on the upper levels of the tower creating stunning office window views of London.
