Also to me it doesn't look anything like the render...where's the 3 tier thing...and they don't look the same shape to me.

EDIT: the render and the actual building i mean doesnt look the same shape.

I'm probably just being dim

The rendering and the Webcam are from diffferent viewpoints. The rendering is from the side of the building. The webcam is positioned kinda behind the building

if that makes sense

Cannot wait for the cladding to go up.


No matter what people say about it 'not making a big impression on the city', I think it will and I can't wait to see it complete.

Those are some badass streetscapes, great pics!

Moving down to London this summer from Glasgow, to start work as a graduate building services engineer at Ove Arup. I love London. Will hopefully get involved in some kickass London projects like this one... as far I know they're involved in one way or another in every major skyscraper proposal for the City!
