A topping out ceremony took place at the windswept peak of a 31-storey block in Finsbury’s “mini-manhattan”.
The event marked the laying of the final beam at the Canaletto building, in City Road, where finished flats will be on sale for up to £3.2million.
Already 80 per cent of the 190 apartments have been sold, although the building isn’t due to be completed until the middle of next year.
The flats range from studios to three bedrooms properties, about 35 per cent of which will be affordable housing.
At the top, one bespoke penthouse commands will take up a whole floor and large roof terrace with 360 degree views of the London skyline.
