The 73 storey development at 1 Undershaft in the City of London will rise to 309.6m AOD (Above Ordnance Datum) crowning the new cluster of planned skyscrapers in the square mile. The proposed building also includes the creation of a large public square at the base of the tower and a free public viewing gallery, education centre and restaurant at the top of the tower.
The design for the new tower has been commissioned by Singapore-based Aroland Holdings who are currently developing skyscrapers in capital cities around the world.
