British Land boss says office nickname grates

Posted on by Rob Powell

The boss of developers British Land has expressed his disappointment at the moniker given to one of his forthcoming developments.

The 47 storey development, designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners, at 122 Leadenhall Street has been nicknamed and widely referred to as “The Cheesegrater“.

But Chris Grigg, Chief Executive of British Land is quoted in the Daily Mail as saying: “We’re not massive fans. We think it will be a stunning piece of British architecture, so to call it a “Cheesegrater” is very disappointing.

BL refers to the development simply as “The Leadenhall Building”. The shell and core of the building is expected to be completed by the summer of 2014.
