A new render of The City with 40 Leadenhall, The Pinnacle and 52 Lime Street. I think 100 Bishopsgate and Heron Plaza are in there too.

It's supposed to represent how things might look in 2030, and at the current rate of progress, it might actually take that long.

And even in 2030 20 Leadenhall is still unfinished...

haha indeed - the Leadenhall and Walkie Talkie apparently... but I am sure that most of these projects will be compeleted by 2020 sort of time...

Is the Pinnacle in that render accurate? It looks a little bottom heavy...?

Hell, I'm proud of it, and I didn't contribute a thing. Crisp, classic modernism. Timeless.
