Construction of ‘The Pinnacle’ skyscraper – also known as the ‘Bishopsgate Tower’ and the ‘Helterskelter’– is close to beginning thanks to an imminent funding package. The developer, Arab Investments, has arranged £550m of debt financing as well as £100m of equity from investors, totalling the £650m required to start work.
omg! finally! ahh, london is finally getting taller! i cant wait to see this building. i find it interesting that the lobby is open. i like the idea, but where's the actual lobby? i've seen renders of the open air part, but not the actual glass enclosed lobby.
anyways, great to finally see it rise! that last picture is so clean btw! and that crane w/o the arm looks like a robot with 2 guns!
