    There is/No There is

    How it is possible to write an English sentence like: Also in the City is a very tall building called the Monument? I found it in a simplified book by John Escott, London.

    Is it because the adverbial modifier of place is put in front? Or because of the Monument which is a known building?

    Thank you in advance.

    Because of the beginning adverbial, the word "there" can be omitted.
