The Leadenhall Building
- Each floor plate on the south side is stepped back by .75 metres from the one below, resulting in the distinctive wedge shape when viewed from the east and west.
- The distinctive wedge shape is designed to virtually eliminate the building intruding into the sight-line of St. Paul's Cathedral when viewed along Fleet Street and up Ludgate Hill.
- Solar gain to the office areas is countered with the incorporation of remotely controlled blinds.
- Of the 29 lifts, 22 are exterior, glass, and fully scenic.
