I agree. In any other context this would be an uninteresting building, but actually a straighforward cuboid is the one shape that is not represented in the City yet. As long as there is only one, it provides a perfectly good addition to all the different shapes, I wouldn't even call it a 'filler' but an integral part. They might have done something a little better with the cladding mind you.

I just hope they find a tenant for this one. The pre-let of AON was the turning point for the Leadenhall project.

Agree 100%
In my mind the cladding definatly needs to appear more sleek, like 7 World Trade Center in NYC.

Decent progress.

I'm looking forward to this one. Once the shard finishes, we still have 122 leadenhall and 20 fenchurch for a good while, then this after them (and many others dotted about but these are the biggies). Just need the heron plaza to get moving again soon, will be another nice addition to the city. Also the pinnacle is needed to complete a great cluster.... There must be a tenant out there who would commit to that beautiful building....

Yeah let's hope a big company decides to compromise to this building like AON did with Leadenhall.

Looks that way, although it doesn't look particularly strong...

Fillers are what make good skylines. And this is a good filler too.
