Cheesegrater topped out at 224 metres high

THE LEADENHALL Building, nicknamed the Cheesegrater, officially became the tallest skyscraper in the Square Mile last night at a “topping out” ceremony to mark its 224-metre height. The office tower, jointly owned by British Land and Oxford Properties, is 51 per cent pre-let to insurer Aon and underwriter Amlin. London Mayor Boris Johnson attended the ceremony alongside hundreds of guests and said the pinnacle demonstrated London’s “ability to design and construct world-class architecture”.
