There were guys working on it this lunchtime, anyone know what it relates to?

I'm not sure. But I wonder if this scheme will now go the same way as the Pinnacle. Both proposals are about the same age I think and it might be considered that a new design would be better for this location.

Well I think it was the Pinnacle's complexity that killed it. This one does not have that problem.

My guess, based on the black and white verticles is London Wall Place (Schroders new HQ) - another Brookfield development.

That makes sense, the black sections are nice and glossy, should look good, although how long the white stays white down London Wall remains to be seen
