Plans to build London’s newest sky scraper have been approved by city planners this week meaning that The Trellis also known as 1 Undershaft, (yes that is UNDER SHAFT!!!), will soon begin construction. Earlier this year, we told you about London’s dick-and-balls shaped sky scraper and it seems as though city planners are sticking with the male genitalia theme here with the glorious naming of 1 Undershaft. It is rectangular in shape set to become the second tallest sky scraper in western Europe, only about 5 meters shorter than The Shard.

Once completed, the sky scraper is going to be 304.94 metres tall and will have a free public viewing gallery at the top. We wonder if they’ll call the viewing gallery ‘The Bellend’ – it is located at the tip of the Shaft after all!

After recently graduating from a degree in History (something she wishes her student loan would become), Annabel resents people who complain about their commutes between zone 1 & 2, as hers goes beyond the Oyster zone. It's worth it, however, to be able to write in a city where bars stay open past 8pm.
