20 Fenchurch Street

Walkie-Talkie powered by Fuel Cells

20 Fenchurch Street is a commercial skyscraper in London that takes its name from its address on Fenchurch Street, in the historic City of London financial district. It has been nicknamed 'The Walkie-Talkie' because of its distinctive shape.[3] Construction was completed in spring 2014, and the top-floor 'sky garden' was opened in January 2015.[4] The 34-storey building is 160 m (525 ft) tall, making it the sixth-tallest building in the City of London and the 12th tallest in London.

When it comes to sustainability, urban environments pose a range of unique challenges to developers. Due to constrained development sites, the close proximity of surrounding buildings and noise and air quality concerns a central city location does not lend itself to large-scale energy generation through the use of solar photovoltaics, wind power, biomass heating or gas fuelled Combined Heat and Power Plant (CHP). However Land Securities is committed to finding sustainable solutions wherever possible.

Conservatively, the Fuel Cell will reduce the carbon dioxide emissions of the building by at least 270 tonnes per annum
