Foster's Lime Street project is the tallest building onsite in the City 

As speculation grows about how many of London's tower proposals will actually get built, Foster and Partners have managed to get this 29 storey project to site, making it the tallest under construction in the city. It is the latest project to be commenced by British Land as part of its City development programme. 51 Lime Street will offer a stunning development of the most modern office accommodation in the heart of the City of London. A new public plaza at ground level with accommodation for retail, restaurants and wine bars will further enhance an environment already rich in amenities for staff and visitors. Two buildings of striking design by Foster and Partners will offer 475,000 sq ft of net floor area of high quality accommodation directly opposite Lloyd's Insurance market, of which 465,000 sq ft is pre-let to Willis Group.
