You Won’t Believe What London’s New Sky Scraper Is Called!

Plans to build London’s newest skyscraper 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!
