In pictures: 'Walkie Talkie' development in London takes shape

Construction News was taken on a tour of the the “Walkie Talkie” skyscraper at 20 Fenchurch Street yesterday, as media viewed the central London development for the first time.

Land Securities and Canary Wharf Group are joint developers on 38-storey project, which was designed by architect Rafael Vinoly.

The unique shape of the skyscraper as it fans out from the base allows for greater floorspace further up the building. Construction started in January and is due to finish in April 2014.
