I actually prefer the ones approved. I think if they accepted the originals it would ahve been to much of a dramtic leap from Boxes to this beautiful curved splenders. I think gentl changing the way canary wharf looks is much more potent and reliable. Plusthe new towers are just as nice

The curved ones are a nicer design, but they look abit stumpy.....if they where abit taller they would have looked great

Even though i like the previous design, i think the approved ones are more appropriate (in other words boxy) in relation to the rest of the estate.

I much prefer the approved designs, the curved designs would better suit an other area of London... hint hint.

Agreed. New designs suit CW much better. Hope they get a big pre-let and get constructed as soon as ^_^

They should just build the taller of those twins (curved version) on its own at the edge of the estate, lol.. Don't think they really work as a twin-set.

Danny Divito and Sandra Bullock ? That's quite a pair.

I prefer the approved version for CW, given that the architecture of CW is pinstripe-proper.

I think North Quay towers have also been approved recently. 216m & 203m.
