One of London’s tallest buildings which is known as the Cheesegrater has been sold to Chinese investors for a massive £1.15bn.

British Land and Oxford Properties, both owned 50 per cent of the famous skyscraper, both companies have said contracts have been exchanged with CC Land.

Tim Roberts, the head of offices and residential at British Land, said: “British Land and Oxford Properties took a bold step at the early stages of the UK’s economic recovery to develop The Leadenhall Building to generate a high-quality, long-term income stream,”

“It’s a decision that has really paid off.”
