I don't like it. It's just a box.

I like this one alot. When I was in London year ago I saw this building under construction (on about The Barbican terrace level) and three weeks ago I was amazed I could admire the whole building generally finished.

This may just be a boxy apartment block, but it's a good quality one. It would've been a lot better on the skyline though had it been a few storeys higher to stand out from citypoint and Ropemaker place. Unfortunately the standard London height reduction has made it just blend into the background.

The richness and quality of materials that cloak a building, especially at ground level are probably more important that the overall shape, whether it be a box, rectangular or otherwise. That's what the pedestrian will see. This building is that. But its weakness lies in the disjointed silver steel vertical rods that play jigsaw against the black granite. This style seems to be the flavour of the year on so many buildings unfortunately.

'The Heron' has almost the same height as the one next to it so it actually fits in the skyline.

I didn't look over this skyscraper so strict but it seemed preety well made.
