I have never been a fan of this design but could almost forgive based on the render showing the City, river and South Bank. However still can't come to terms with how nasty 20 Fenchurch looks in that render. Blackfriars, though looks graet, the height reduction actually looks right for the over all view.

The appear to have taken my criticism of the direction the restaurant faces at the top and turned the tower around so I can enjoy a better view.

Thanks!

Aren't those renders very old? And aren't the versions of 20 FC/1 blackfriars shown here the schemes from before the height reductions?

If so it would be cool if someone with photoshop skills (and too much free times on their hands) modified those buildings to match current plans.

No its not as 54 Lime Street will fill the gap and add to the gradient down towards the river. A few more low rise developments and we will have an amazing world class cluster.

You were robbed mate. For that price, I'd want the breakfast to come with a complimentary spliff.
