It looks alright. In the first rendering though, it looks like it is nothing but a wall of glass.

But, I am glad to see London rising.

I agree, boring towers are needed to create a well balanced skyline, otherwise its too messy and complex. Most of the montages on the SSP homepage are a good example

However Broadgate Tower looks stunning to me - not at all boring and probably slightly protruding into the wacky category. What's that stuff on the left - looks like a vertical lawn or something - now that would be wacky!
