I tihnk this tower looks ridiculous. The tower looks like a toy just dumped on the city. Maybe its the curvature that reminds me of a helter skelter. I'm not keen on it.

Well I think that new Las Vegas style thing proposed for Birmingham looks ridiculous, and I also think this is one of the best proposals in europe

Check out the mayor's planning report for full details: http://mayor.london.gov.uk/mayor/pla...ate_report.pdf










thanks for not crediting me with my own photos wjfox! You can even see me reflected in the glass box of the final shot with Oakleys on my head and my Canon peering through the glass. Still, didn't stick my own signature on them, so what's the harm!

go on, have another you cheeky scamp. I've posted this in the UK Projects and Constructions forum, but no doubt it would make its way on to here in no time at all, so I'll save you the hassle! Looking down Bishopsgate from the intersection with London Wall:

p.s., before anyone else says it, yes from this angle it looks rather like the Chicago Trump Tower.

No, from that angle it looks ridiculous....ridiculously good!!! What did ya think I was gonna say?

Ok then, seeing as someone cocked up the dates on this thing, I'm gonna put the champagn on ice till tomorrow...later today I mean actually. I want good news!

When next I come on here I want someone to have posted a comment that says clearly "Don't worry JackRabbitSlim, they have approved the tower, here is the news articleabout it..."

Else I'm gonna get pretty dam pissed...and not the good kinda pissed either!

This project is 99.99% certain to get approved.

The Corporation of London needs this tower to compete with Canary Wharf.

Beautiful. This is a stunning building that is tall but perfectly in proportion with the rest of the skyline. This will be one of the world's most beautiful towers

the CAA probly got bribed by the planners from Shard London Bridge to complain abt Bishopsgate tower, so that the Shard would be the tallest in london not Bishopsgate.

haha, just jkn

But still thats true, 17m difference is nothing it doesnt make sense why they would just go and complain abt such a small amount of height.
