I think this will help the CP area feel less cut off from the rest of CW. It might just be me but walking through there recently it still felt like a bit remote in some way from the rest of the area.

Nice design, but I think it would look better twice as tall. It's a bit fat now.

It's simply a filler. In CW a tower has to be really tall to stand out (at least 200 metres).

^ That's not a construction update, that belongs in the London skyline thread.

I agree! I wish they would build a less box shape building sometime soon!

Are there any proposals for super talls in Canary Wharf?

There is currently a height limit in Canary Wharf of 240m due to City Airport. Taller proposals in Canary Wharf are Riverside South at 236m and the Columbus Tower 237m. The Shard will have to remain the only Supertall in London for a while at 310m - not too long I hope!

The money is still in the City when it comes to daring construction projects.
