Broadgate would be to the right of Swiss Re. Should be visible. (Near the red crane, the broadgate crane )

I tried adding Fenchurch street and to be brutally honest it looked dire....it think its a mix of an ugly design and there are no good quality renderings to choose from for that building (they are all slightly 'cartoony' looking).

I will try and add Broadgate, but i'm not sure ive seen any good distance renderings of it that i can use, and i'm not sure which way it will be orientatied (fat side or skinny side )

Use the image on the right -

Height is 192m but it's closer to the river than the other towers so will appear much taller.

As I said in another thread it would be much better if it just hac the bottem curve and the top one was flattened so it is the same width to the top, because some things like the big external balcony at the top are great

Anyway, i'm incredibly lazy and can can rarely be bothered to do a render.........dont know whats come over me lately

Yes, I believe there is going to be a mall built in the area of the brown tower. I'll get some info.
