100 Leadenhall looks great. But there is one thing that especially concerns me about the increasingly overcrowded City cluster. And it is that, if measures are not soon taken, 30 St Mary Axe (aka the Gherkin) will soon be almost entirely obscured from view.

I understand that the City's tight and haphazard, medieval street plan doesn't lend itself to the kind of neat spacing of high rise buildings to be found in more modern, grid pattern cities. But there surely has to be a greater check on developments within the Square Mile. St Paul's has protected views from multiple vantage points around London. And that principle is fine, even if the reality is poorly conceived. Yet it seems that those loudly complaining, self appointed guardians of our architectural heritage care not one jot about views of what is, in my opinion, still the finest modern building in the financial heart of our city.

I've already sadly accepted that one of the other great high rises within the City - the Willis Building - will, in the near future, only be properly visible from close up or above. Please let's not allow that to happen to the Gherkin too.

I completely agree with you, as I said before the Gerkhin is at risk and it is not possible to cover one of the finest and iconic skyscrapers with shaped boxes. There should be a sight restriction also applied for the Gerkhin and not also White chapel... But developers run the Square mile boom

I suggest a petition to Londoners, but the last one with PLP Pinnacle did not go well.

English Heritage are requesting ideas for new protected sight lines for London. Perhaps some sightlines to the Gherkin, the Shard and other of the better London skyscrapers may be needed. Wouldn't that be an irony for EH!
