Or to put it another way, the tossers at English Heritage wanted their pound of flesh in order to justify their utterly pointless existance

12 meters dont make much of a difference in appearance. supertall is just a random title, because at one point you just have to draw the line

I know in appearance it wouldn´t make such a difference, my point was that supertall sounds better, but I like this tower so much anyways and I´m very glad to see it growing

The core is rising, but where's the steel?? No cause for excitement yet.

The gherkin is getting a huge corkscrew of a neighbour. I bet the two of them will look sweet side-by-side.

Right now, it just looks like a stub compared to Tower 42 in the background. But it will rise over a hundred meters taller than it eventually.
