30 St Mary Axe

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

One of the most distinctive buildings in the City of London is 30 St Mary Axe, otherwise known as The Gherkin. Opened in 2004, and festooned with diamond-shaped panes of glass from top to bottom, this uniquely missile-shaped office tower stands on the site of the old Baltic Exchange (the former headquarters for world shipping sales that was severely damaged by an IRA bomb in 1992).

As London’s sixth biggest building, you can get a glimpse of the 580 foot-tall Gherkin from a large variety of vantage points around the east and south stretches of town.
