It looks really tall. But I find its colour too bright.

St George Wharf Tower is a residential skyscraper under construction in Vauxhall, London, as part of the St George Wharf development. When built, it will be 181 metres (594 ft) tall with 50 storeys, making it one of the tallest residential towers in Europe. The structure will be topped by a wind turbine, which will power the tower's common lighting. At the base of the tower, water will be drawn from the London Aquifer and heat pump technology will be used to remove warmth from the water in the winter to heat the apartments. The tower will require one third of the energy compared to a similar building and CO2 release will be between one half and two thirds of normal emissions. It will be triple-glazed to minimise heat loss and gain, with low 'e' glazing and ventilated blinds between the glazing to further reduce heat gain.

As similar as the hundreds of boxy towers to each other.. The elegant shape actually much more resembles Transamerica Pyramid than the bulky Ryugyong.

Without that rather ugly mast in the centre, that shot could be one of a million places... hardly iconic.

That's mean! XD
But if Cosmo is going to argue how awesome Berlin's skyline supposedly is, then he could at least search for pictures that are not 15 years old and which don't look so lame.
