Wow, that aerial is amazing, density is so great in the city in London! And all the new towers will make it extremely dense in the near future... Time for Tim to go to london soon.

I really like this building, the shape is great. Itll be a really good adition to London when it's done, even though it isn't that big

Thanks to mrout for this pic.

The smaller core has now topped out, at 8 floors. The larger core is just starting, and will be over 3 times taller.

If it was much taller it would block SwissRe from the south.
