'London Cucumber' could provide jobs for workers on plumbing courses

Engineers on plumbing courses may be able to find work on a proposed skyscraper in London nicknamed the 'Cucumber'.

The 41-storey building is set to be built by the billionaire Reuben brothers at a site in Paddington Basin if it receives planning approval.

Technicians who have taken plumbing courses may be required during the development of the 140-metre high structure, which will feature 222 flats and a hotel among other facilities.

While it has been given the nickname of the Cucumber, the building is officially called 1 Merchant Square and could be built by 2016.

If the project goes ahead it will become the tallest complex in Westminster and the 17th highest in the English capital.

Last month, British Land announced that it had agreed a deal to develop the 47-storey Leadenhall Building - dubbed the Cheesegrater - with Oxford Properties.

The building was designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners and will offer 610,000 sq ft of office space.
