Its so very sad. This is an iconic building and always seemed in sync with maersk - the jagged angles seem straight from the maersk logo. In my world, this should be protected and saved from demolition

I've heard that this building is planned to be demolished, anyone got any confirmation?

What I do know is that employee's of Maersk are going to move the new "Aldgate house" office building that's being constructed.
