Incredible renders, hopefully it translates to an incredible building. Another non- reflective glass scraper for London - that look worked damn well with Swiss RE so this should look equally stunning. Can't say I've seen that shade of purple used in a scraper much before - interesting.

Excellent design. I like it. That said, it's a shame St Paul's will be surrounded by tall buildings. It would look much better in CW.

St pauls is hardly surrounded by tall buldings...the city cluster is far enough away from st pauls that it doesnt have much effect on it (in my opinion anyway). Also..this tower is in the middle of the exisiting cluster so it wont be bothering st pauls.

If anything its the barbican towers that do the most damage to the views of st pauls.

Also there will be a cluster in Croydon at some time hopefully (this is a borough of London to the south of the city centre). Plus, as has been mentioned, clusters in Greenwich, Southbank/Elephant&Castle, Vauxhall and possibly even Wapping...

The location of this tower simply couldn't be better. It will stand almost directly in the centre of an area specifically designated for tall buildings. It won't interfere with any viewing corridors or heritage sites. St Paul's will still be very prominent on the skyline.

Well - not a lot is actually going on! Think of London as a place full of huge proposals, many of which are approved, but none of which are being built!

At the moment only 51 Lime Street is actually UC - but that's a mere 125m..

The thing with London is even if there were no new proposals for skyscrapers starting tomorrow we'd still end up with at least 20 skyscrapers in total built by the end of the decade (and that's assuming some of the present approved/proposed won't be built)! But yet we still get new proposals - Britannia says another one is coming along soon. Could be a Beetham residential tower.

Bishopsgate Tower, if it is approved, will be another major leap forward in London's skyscraper future as it would signal that supertalls are fine (only 5 years ago this was unthinkable, especially one in the City itself) and that the City is a skyscraper free for all! We just need the economy to hang on so that these towers come to fruition...

As long as that happens, most of the London projects will go up! They may even go up sooner than expected!

Reports keep saying that the office market in London is going to boom next year, which I sure hope it does, but why do people think this? What's gonig to happen over the next 12 months that will create such large demand for office space?

Two good things have happened in the last 3 years:
1 - London and the UK didn't go into recession like much of the world did.
2 - Global companies and UK companies are looking to expand and consolidate their businesses in the void after the global recession.

In the next 12 months, we will see pre-lets come in, more proposals and approvals and construction work start.

Well, I like it and don't. The glass looks great but the bottom's kinda messy.
Once above that though
