The Leadenhall Building, also known as The Cheese Grater, is a 51-storey office tower that rises to a height of 225 metres (738 feet). This is an unashamedly ambitious project, this is an ambitious exercise in architectural engineering. The 225 m tall building is one of the most recognisable in the square mile. We simply love this development!
