Skanska to build new City landmark
Work has begun on The Walbrook building, a new office and retail development in the City of London. When complete, the building will provide a gross area of 55,000m² of lettable floor space.
Working on behalf of property and development company Minerva, Skanska has begun demolishing ex- isting structures on the 1.6 acre site, which boasts a 50m-long frontage on Cannon Street, one of the City’s main arteries. More than 5,000t of struc- tural steelwork will be erected next year and the building is scheduled for completion in late 2009.
