Ok, out of all of London's biggest upcoming projects, which is your favorite:
1. Bishopsgate Tower
2. London Bridge Tower
3. Columbus Tower
4. Leadenhall Tower
5. Beetham Tower
7. Heron Tower
8. North Quay Towers 1, 2, and 3

These are the main ones, but there are many others, so I will put an "other" choice.

You should post pictures so people know what they look like.
Mine is actually the giant "cheese-grater" ... Leadenhall Tower :) and at 225m quite a hefty one aswell :cheers:
The Leadenhall Building

North Quay for me :)

I really like the Minerva building but most of London's approved buildings look great.

london bridge tower for sure

LBT for me... tall, sleek, elegant, and in South London!

Shard o' Glass! Shard o' Glass!

London Bridge Tower of course! :)

London Bridge Tower, Leadenhall and Bishopsgate (in that order).
I love the shape and design of Leadenhall the most - its triangular silhouette will kick ass. However, the sheer size and height of LBT is like nothing before seen in a European city (bar the Eiffel Tower), so I'd have to choose that overall. Bishopsgate is a very close third.

i really like the front of Leadenhall but i'm not sure about the sloped part. I voted for Minerva.

Is the Bishopsgate tower also known as the Difa tower????
If it is then thats my fave.
2)The Ledenhall building
then the rest in any order

We need pics! I don't know these by name. LBT is spectacular but I'm afraid I'd miss something good if I voted without pics.

Leadenhall or North Quay. I don't really like LBT.
August 8th, 2005, 09:07 PM
You prefer North Quay - a bland generic uninspiring box - over a stunning 306m iconic design like LBT? :? :? :?

There are many great proposals but Leadenhall Building is my favourite.
August 8th, 2005, 09:25 PM
1) Bishopsgate Tower, supertall and such a innovative design
2) LBT, future icon that will revolutionalize London's skyline.
3) Cheese Grater, the glass cladding looks like it will be interesting
4) Columbus Tower
BTW: What's a funky name for Bishopsgate? :D

Ok, seeing as noone else is posting pics of Bishopsgate, and its my favourite proposal i have taken it upon myself to post a few.
Its the tall one btw :)
