A New London Office Tower (nicknamed Cheesegrater 2) Is Given the Go-Ahead

At 100 Leadenhall, a new skyscraper, Cheesegrater 2, has been granted planning permission by The City of London Corporation’s Planning and Transportation.

The building, set to include 56 storeys and reach 264.4 metres, will be constructed by Lai Sun Development Company. It is also set to be the third-tallest building in the Square Mile.

Already existing developments at 100, 106 and 107 Leadenhall Street will be demolished for the project.

Cheesegrater 2 will be providing:
  • upwards of 102,000 square metres of office accommodation,
  • basement showers,
  • cycle parking,
  • ground-floor retail space,
  • two podium terraces,
  • a free public viewing gallery, to also be used as a restaurant and bar outside of public hours.

Upon completion, an estimated 6,300 workers will use the office. A link will be created between Leadenhall Street and Bury Street through a new route through the site which will be available 24 hours a day.

The chairman of the City of London Corporation’s Planning and Transportation Committee, Chris Hayward, has said:

“As a leading business district accommodating 483,000 workers every day, it is vital to continue to deliver office space for the significant growth expected with the arrival of the Elizabeth line later this year.

Leading to a church dating back to the 12th century, this development demonstrates the city’s distinctive ability to house the old and new side by side, while becoming more accessible to creative workers and members of the public.”
