The Scalpel: a sharp new addition to London’s skyline

Posted at 10:00 am, January 23, 2013 in News

Do you know what London needs? A new massive glass skyscraper. Step aside Mr Shard, there’s a new kid on the block. Work at 52-54 Lime Street will begin later this year on ‘The Scalpel’ for completion in 2017. This 38 storey, 190 metre high building will be ten metres taller than the Gherkin (okay, the Shard still wins height-wise) and contain over 560,000 square feet of office space. The Gherkin, The Shard, The Cheesegrater, The Scalpel – we really need to work on making our buildings sound a tad more poetic. Jude Brosnan
