Definitely a fan of your's wj! You keep us updated so well on all the major projects in London. Loving the one taken from the hill. Kudos to you again!

Thanks for posting the tid-bit on those huge frames. In being a huge frame & brace buff, this tower has got me.

Cool pic too DarJoLe.

Now all we need is some more of that good ole SOM cladding. It doesn't skimp on its projects.

Wow! That's a pretty impressive rendering... otherwise he's got a time machine and a camera...

I'm intrigued what the 'fat' sides will look like though, as those are what I see from my flat.

Great images. We could squeeze another tower onto the site of the abandoned bit of Broad Street viaduct immediately north of the tower plus the air rights above the Liverpool Street approach tracks immediately to the east, in combination that's a decent sized site.

That's the site of Foster's Norton Folgate site isn't it?

Off topic I know, but that pic reminds me that a friend had some friends from New York staying... He recommended they go up St Paul's Cathedral for the view... They returned from their day out very impressed with the view, saying that it was so high up they could even see the Eiffel Tower from there
