LONDON — The City of London has issued its approval for plans to build a new skyscraper in central London dubbed The Tulip.
The Tulip would be build adjacent to the Gherkin and is designed to be a tourist attraction. Described as a "classroom in the sky," the slender shaft of The Tulip opens at the top for 12 floors of galleries, bars, restaurants and an educational facility offering free visits to schoolchildren.
Gondola pods are integrated to the massive glass windows and allow for continually changing views of the city as they circulate.
Still photos were released showing what the London skyline will eventually look like.
