Tour Granite in Paris, for its beautiful cladding and its different look according to the angle.

Why? It is a fantastic tower and an exciting project!

Much better than many other projects around Europe.

Your opinion is part of the minority.

There are many projects in the city cluster being built and granted building permission that will "join the gap".

there are plenty of people who think like me. just look at the construction thread in the int. section. these quotes are what i found after browsing only 2 pages of the thread.

I really dislike this one too.

not bashing london. it had some great towers going up recently. this one building seems to ruins all the effort.

I hated the renderings of Fenchurch St and from some angles it does look a bit bulky, but it's turning out much better than I imagined! The cladding is really high quality and as someone above said, there will be towers built between it and the main cluster.
