I cannot believe how beautiful that base is. AMAZING! I would say more but my mind's a mess right now.

Not on the main building existing, only a smaller one on the same site.

This building is quintessentially LONDON. I can't get over how well it fits into the skyline! And the base is absolutely amazing!

I am still in awe. And I've seen this design daily for the past year at least.

Build it!

I thought London had more skyscrapers for such a big city... But the Bishopgatetower is tall, and I like the glass, but not really the design. I like the planned half-piramid building more.

I'm not a big fan of KPF's work in London, especially when it comes to office/commercial buildings. Heron Tower was abit too boxy to be in the skyline with Swiss Re, 122 Leaden Hall and Bishopsgate imo.

But......I must say this building is pure class all the way!!!

Arab Investments have confirmed today that the Bishopsgate Tower will be built speculatively,
i.e. without the need for a pre-let.

Btw, here's a higher quality render of the base -
