For a relatively short tower it is making quite an impact on the skyline....nice one!

As somebody said in the UK forum - if this was built in Manhattan, you'd never even notice it. Here in London it makes a big difference to the skyline.

The invitation is still open. I was waiting for replies.
I suggest a site visit on Monday 31st July. Can do around 4.00pm if that suits. Will give a tour of the tower to the top where tremendous views of London will be revealed.
We can accomodate up to 15 visitors and will supply protective clothing and safety boots.
If you are lucky you may witness the first cladding panel installation.
