Mystery developer Tom Ryan behind new London skyscraper
He's the mystery developer behind the latest London skyscraper but little else is known about Tom Ryan.
It is understood he bought the site for £100m earlier this week in the business district east of the City of London.
The £1bn, 74 storey building will be 242m high, that's 7m higher than Canary Wharf's tallest office building.
If it gets the green light, the development will be the tallest in London for a residential build.
Mr Ryan, who is also understood to have development interests in the US, already has planning permission for a mixed development on the site but he will have to apply to Tower Hamlets council to allow a housing development instead.
It is believed that he is planning other investments in the London property market.
His company is Ryan Corporation (UK) Ltd, with a London address.
