Awesome views, especially the one where you can also see the Gherkin in the background . The Pinnacle will noticeably fill up the skyline of the City of London.

The Brits sure have some interesting names for their 'scrapers...Gherkin, Shard, etc....how many of these were named by someone other than the developer?

Would they use the nicknames in the newspapers if they had originated in SSC?

Judging by the newspaper headlines, they seem to be very creative for themselves.

British newspapers are famous for giving nicknames to absolutely everything.

Yes - everyone loves London and everyone wants to come here. Unfortunately that makes it very crowded!
