London's "Stump" to be Transformed into 22 Bishopsgate
Posted on: 03/03/2015

The Pinnacle tower, or what has come to be known as the “stump”, will soon be pulled down in order to make room for the new scheme, now called 22 Bishopsgate.

Lipton Rogers are the developers in charge of the site, after taking over from Saudi Owner Sedco last month, meaning that the previous plans for a ‘Helter Skelter’ building have finally been scrapped after being firstly put forward in 2001.

It is expected that demolition will start as early as May, and main construction work will begin towards the end of the year and completion scheduled for the end of 2018.

The new building will offer over 186,000sq m in floor space according to the new plan devised by PLP, and will be kept simple to maximise the availability of space. A spokesperson for Lipton Rogers added: “We have developed an innovative design for an exceptional office tower with art and character, shaped to respect views of the City. [It is a] new vertical City campus reflecting the City’s ever-changing consumer base.”

This is exciting news for London, who has been struggling with the provision of office space for the past year, benefiting the London area with much needed commercial jobs and hundreds of job opportunities.

We work alongside many international clients who have existing projects in London and are on the look-out for both permanent and contract staff. If you are between jobs, or are looking for a more exciting opportunity, please click here for a list of our current vacancies.
