I appreciate the "Londonish" design of buildings very much. They use alot of glass and steel, it's kinda modern and nice to see.

It is a real shame that there are height restrictions. The building would have looked even better with an extra 15 to 20m

The tower will help to stretch the cluster southwards

^ Yeah, this tower is definitely a significant step for London.

It's going to be the tallest residential building in London, and the tallest u/c building since Churchill Place went up in 2003.

Thanks to Chest for this pic.

This pretty much confirms that groundwork has started on this project.
