Meet London's new skyscraper: £1bn Pinnacle set to get go-ahead

The £1bn Pinnacle skyscraper may be given the go-ahead after construction was stopped last year over cost concerns.

If built, the Pinnacle at 200 Bishopsgate will be the second-tallest skyscraper in the UK. It’s budget is twice that of the £450m Shard.

Construction work for the 63-storey tower was stopped after architects felt the building’s “helter-skelter” shape meant that all windows would be different in size.

In October 2012, developers Arab Investments told architects KPF to re-design the building.

The architects have made changes to the floor plans and interior by cutting retail space to make room for commercial offices and a bigger atrium.

The Independent reported the new designs may require further planning permission.
