It would be the perfect picture if the Gerkin was visible in it.

If you ask me, Fenchurch St. building ruins it. The architect should congratulate himself for inventing a new style: absurdism.

To be honest what ruins the effect is the gap between Leadenhall and Fenchurch St on the skyline more than anything, needs some filler between the two.

The proportions seem wrong. It needs to be taller and thinner and the rest of the skyline needs to be taller to make it fit in

That view from more to the right would probably look better. The gap between Fenchurch and Leadenhall would be decreased slightly.

16m core climb, not too shabby. Would be nice if they could get a first floor done, but it looks like we can expect that early May.

Though I know no official statement has been made by the developers, this project is ON HOLD. There has been no on-site activity for more than a week. My office overlooks the construction site, all plant and construction materials have been removed it is effectively a ghost town!
