Sorry, I know there is no change and I posted a few hours ago, but I just looked on the webcam and is this not just cinematic gold:



Couldn't resist posting it!

Nope, fraid not. The Gerkin (aka Swiss Re, aka 30 St Mary Axe) is about 180m tall, whereas this tower- as the title of the thread shows -will be 125m tall. It doesn't sound very tall, I know, but it still has quite an effect on the skyline and is quite imposing from ground level; it should also help to create a more natural looking skyline when the taller proposals go up....cus you can't just have all high-rises, you need a few mid-tall towers as well!

Yeah, it'll be the third talest building in the cluster upon completion, as it's taller than the St Helens building (which is fairly imposing already)

Do you have the attention span of a retarded goldfish? Its been known for months that the cladding firm went bust and they're using another cladding company now. Cladding goes up next month

But it was confirmed by Willis 2 months ago in 'The Limey!' People told you that, yet you still ask?

oh, be nice to the newbies. Enthusiastic, but lacking in the ability to read or remember earlier pages of the thread.

Some people have not got the time to read every post over 11 pages to find out all the facts. Someone asked an inoccent question to be shot down in flames.

I wondered about the cladding but just didnt ask.

Maybe instead of spending time writing a critical comment just write the answer.
Just my thoughts.

We are all here for the same reasons. We are all interested in different buildings and how they are made.
