Tower 42 has gone on the market at a discount of 3% from the price its current owners attempted to sell it for around 17 months ago in 2010.

Funds that are managed by both LaSalle Investment Management and BlackRock Inc are seeking "in excess of" £290 million (which amounts to around US $457 million) for the tower and five other buildings that are situated on the 2.2-acre site.

Tower 42 owners have invited 4 architecture companies to come up with ideas on how the area at the base of the building can be modernised to better connect with the City of London.
