Not really. Any taller and it would block the other taller and better towers behind it when viewed from the river.

Nice clean pics. The cladding looks different to what I expected. In a better way.

Will the sawtooth design of the windows prevent views towards Tower Bridge from those offices?

Probably the angles the pictures are shot at European make it appear taller. I think they're all shot with Willis in the foreground.
