Nice tower, but from almost every angle apart from that fantastic skyline shot, the building looks way, way smaller than 165m.

From the first picture above it doesn't even look 100m tall.

Can't Wait to see it completed shortly! It was a pretty quick construction process I must say. We will soon have much better projects to turn our attention too however

I saw it from South London today, on the train to London Bridge... it looks really cool. Each of the diamond cross-braces was glinting in the sun - it really stood out on the skyline.

I've always had reservations about the "back" of this one. The design is awful but luckily I think the cladding is good enough to hide it's blatancy.

I agree about the "back" of the tower. It's just that: a "back". Architects should consider views from all sides when designing something this tall. The vertical columns of metal cladding that end 2/3 of the way up just look awkward.

That being said, I really like the rivets in the structurally expressive cross-braces. It gives it a unique texture.
