HSBC named as Pinnacle skyscraper backer
by Gill Montia

Story link: HSBC named as Pinnacle skyscraper backer

HSBC is reported to be close to finalising a deal for a £600 million finance package that will enable the completion of the Pinnacle skyscraper on London’s Bishopsgate.

The building, which has been nick-named the Helter Skelter, is an Arab Investments project that needs to raise a further £130 million from a consortium of other backers.

Plans for the glass-clad tower have been under developments since 2002, with a change of architect in 2005, and the building should finally accommodate over 8,000 workers.

looks like this one has the green light

Why does English construction look so much neater than American construction?

Are those gray beams at the top above ground level? They appear to be, but it's hard to tell from all the way over here in L.A.

They certainly do appear to be above ground level, as they seam to to be above the base of the construction fences.

^ Looks like it will be time to jump those slip forms soon. I'm surprised they still have so many raker beams in place. You would think with all that steel in there providing lateral support, they could start cutting them.
