What a relief it's nothing like that hideous and deformed "walkie talkie" that should have been strangled at birth! Looks good, a nod to late art-deco and a definite quality addition to London's skyline.

Hi there. A bit confused about this development. Their website is talking about a 15 storey building but it seems there is no mention of a tower. Does anyone know if it's had a redesign at some stage to include a tower or maybe to remove the tower? Many thanks!

Many people would disagree with you when it comes to the Walkie Talkie! xD

Is that the same site even? The hoardings are a different colour and it looks to scummy an area to be near Broadgate Tower etc.

Sleek design. Love that it's not boxy like so many London buildings at the moment. It should stretch out the City cluster considerably.

Same site indeed. The red brick building (formerly 'The Light Bar') on the right is the one from an earlier photo which fronts onto Bishopsgate. The City buildings currently end at the Broadgate Tower.
