To the left of St Paul's, off the edge of the image, in the distance.

Why so far from the cluster?? The tower won´t change the skyline at all! has anyone got a render of broadgate tower together with the city cluster, so we get to see how far away it will be??

Quite increadible considering the whole thing will be suspended over nine railway lines. Yet anothe city expansion to the northeast. Bishopsgate on one side and Algate on the other. You could draw a line between rich and poor. Its almost like the city is this unstopable steam roller towards brick lane, clearing away the Algate slums. And may it roll on to Canary Wharf, then the skyline will truly be increadible.

It will make a hell of a difference when viewed from the north.

And it's not THAT far away. Sure, it won't be packed amongst the other towers (Heron, DIFA, Leadenhall, etc.), but it will still be close enough to be considered part of the main City cluster.

And don't forget, there are plans for a couple of other towers nearby.

The glassy roof connecting the lower part of the tower with the main one is very nice.But that's all

if this cladding is as good as the render (they should get intouch with whoever did plantation place) then this will be a quality addition, not just to the northern skyline, but also the ground level around there.
