Gallery: Building would be tallest in Square Mile
Foster & Partners has submitted plans for the tallest building in the City of London – a 305m visitor attraction shaped like a giant tulip.
The proposed scheme on land at 20 Bury Street would be built next door to the architect’s Gherkin at 30 St Mary Axe, which was the first in the cluster of towers to go up in the area when it was completed back in 2003.
The project will come in at just under 3,000sq m and is being bankrolled by billionaire banker Jacob J Safra, owner of the Gherkin, with the application made in the name of Safra’s Luxembourg-based Bury Street Properties.
