Rate this:
In 1991, One Canada Square, the UK's tallest skyscraper, changed the London skyline. But the Cesar Pelli-designed icon did not rise up in the heart of the British capital. As this program describes, the developers undertook a billion-dollar gamble by creating an international financial center, symbolized by this obelisk-shaped tower, in the city's East End docklands. Viewers will learn about the complicated political and economic cooperation that had to occur before building could begin. The collapse of the global property market following completion of the complex-resulting in bankruptcy for the developers and darkness for a large section of the tower-is another major subject.
