38 marked on the core - almost level with Tower 42.
This is really going to dominate the London skyline.

^ definitely not in a good way. I walk past this regularly and the sheer width of this thing cannot be understated especially now the steelwork is starting to make an impact at street level. Very imposing and oppressive, although the cladding is nice.

Not looking forward to seeing this blot the skyline for, well... forever I suppose.

Good to see the building's 'mystique' revived.

It's been cleared up multiple times, they are building the stepped-up design, the flat top design did not even go to planning.

It is indeed the old design, but the point still stands that, at nearly 90m wide, it will completely dominate the skyline for years to come.
