I like the picture (the B&W looks gloomy but ''cool'') and its all what we want, a good updated view of the City. Just shows how the core is starting to impact

That's the trouble with this building. Looks superb some some angles, and pretty bad from others. Undershaft would certainly help balance it out in the Tower Bridge view, drawing the 'pinnacle' of the skyline more into the centre of the cluster. It's just a shame that from Waterloo Bridge it would appear to be basically the same height as 22 Bishopsgate to create a 'pinnacle clump'. Oh well, nothing's perfect!

It already looks huge. I do agree, from some of the river views, it looks like it will be ok, maybe good, maybe really good if the glazing is good. And at only 22m shy of 300m, it's nearing supertall territory, so it will look huge!

Don't you read the latest posts gee it's only two posts up. 24

It's not uncommon for a building / scrapers aesthetics to be dependent on the ''angle'' viewed. It may look very good from certain angles (for the haters, looking down at the ground)
