Anyone dare to do a Photoshop mockup?

The first picture is awesome where the old meets new. London has some amazingly diverse architecture.

I've been watching this project closely for many years, having seen the original stump start in 2008(ash) and then stop again just as fast.

The current 'steeped' tower is rather loathsome, but also intriguing as it's a massive unit (both in terms of height and width).

Make no mistake, this tower will not be loved (much like Tower 42 before it) but it will be a massive asset to The City due to the sheer floor space that it will provide.

It will also definitely be an intimidating presence on th London skyline.

This could end up looking similar to the Empire Tower in Bangkok only taller and a little less wide.

Ultimately, I think the cladding is what will make or break this tower in the end, I'm hoping for the best.

I was in the area this afternoon and passed by the site. This was actually the first time I'd seen the core and steelwork up close.

It's huge, very wide and imposing when seen from street level.

This is going to be a monster of a skyscraper.
