I didn't know this one has such a shiny facade. In most of the pics I saw before it looks rather dull. This is much better. Well done.

Fenchurch Street (also known as The Walkie Talkie Tower) which has a very original and iconic design, which will have Europe's highest sky garden on the top of the building and it will be open to public for free of charge when the construction is completed.

This is probably the best (in terms of quality and price) residential tower in Europe.

Baltimore Wharf | London E14

Floor count: 45
Height: 150m (495 ft)
Status: Under Construction
Architect: Skidmore Owings & Merrill (SOM)

Official website: http://www.baltimorewharf.com/

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1668470


Baltimore Tower provides a choice of brilliantly designed and proportioned 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments arranged from level 2 upwards. All apartment styles have a steel and glass formed balcony which varies in size as the apartment levels rise and rotate slightly to create the Tower’;s distinctive flowing twist.

At levels 43 to 45, the Tower features a split level brasserie, bar and restaurant providing a fabulous and exclusive setting for anything from casual drinks to formal dining with stunning vistas across Canary Wharf’s iconic skyline. Residents will also have an exclusive private lounge and large screen cinema room at lower level.

I think 30 St Mary Axe (The Gherkin) won the one vs one "The Best European Skyscraper" competition on SSC.

It has also been given many global awards by the American, German and other international architecture firms.

the structural height of 300m (including antena), the time of building it in the mid 90s, the 3 big atriums/gardens and the ilumination by night make this tower for me the best in all over europe

I am a massive fan of Sir Norman Foster's designs, but this one does not really seem like one of his master pieces.

I don't know why it looks so chunky and also outdated within a decade and a half after built.

IMO Messeturm is better than this one in terms of architecture although is is much older.
