Outstanding debts and other financial issues meant the Gherkin office tower had to be placed into receivership, Deloitte said.
Neville Kahn, Joint Receiver and Restructuring Services Partner at Deloitte, said:
London's instantly-recognisable 'Gherkin' office tower has been placed into receivership.
The landmark building in central London has been plunged into receivership over ongoing defaults on payments.
Deloitte, who has been appointed as receiver for the landmark, said their "priority is to preserve the value" of the building.
Officially known as 30 St Mary Axe, the Gherkin is the sixth tallest building in London at 180- metres tall.
