Its all go for the 22 Bishopsgate development

London’s city planners have backed plans for a 62-storey tower to rise from the stump of the abandoned Pinnacle scheme at 22 Bishopsgate.

The 1.3m sq ft skyscraper, which is to be built by Brookfield Multiplex, will fill an obvious gap at the centre of the City’s cluster of tall buildings.

Other firms being teed-up for key packages on the £500m construction job include steelwork contractor William Hare, and Carey’s for key concrete packages.   Under the submitted programme concrete core work will resume in March next year after the existing core stump has been removed.

Work stopped in 2012 on the previous Pinnacle building scheme with only the foundations, basements and the lift core up to level nine having been completed.
