Completely agree.

Also, I agree with what someone said up there ^
It looks like new cladding - more 'lined' than induvidual plates. I'd prefer smooth cladding than induvidual plates anyday.

Absolutely agree. A real dynamic tower.

It was never canned. Just didn't have enough financial backing. This was always going to be built though.

It's great to know that this project has an international fan basis.

It'll be a true landmark for The City and will top the City off.

CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THIS RISE PEOPLE!

Great news! I also love the more angular design of this building too!

It'll be great to see this rising as the wait between 122Leadenhall and 52 Lime Street would make the cities constrcution feel dormant but great news!

52 Lime Street will progress at the same time as The Pinnacle.

Reallly? NICE! Although I assume Pinnacle will carry on from the current core?

Because 52 Lime Street will still have foundations and whatnot to do

Also where has this thread disappeared to in the UK forums?

It's going to be great to see these rise... similar to The Leadenhall and 20FS. Don't forget 40 Leadenhall Street too!

Nice!
This will icing on the cake for the cluster... before supertall. Design will stay the same as original even after all this?

No, the design has changed. Its the same building more or less, but the cladding has been changed to standard instead of individually cut pieces.. to cater for this the curved sides of the building have been made more flat.
