Lexicon is damn sexy.
Canaletto looks just as good, if not better. Just wanna see a bit more of it complete before praising it too much.

It's a very classy building as well, no doubt. And it looks just like the renders.

Can I just say Sugar Quay looks absolutely awful. One of the worst designs I've ever seen, for such a prominent location. It is barely better than what it is replacing.

The project is a 50/50 joint venture between the Berkeley Group and Southwark Council. The public realm, including a new street, will be under the remit of Southwark Council.

The winter sun working it's magic on the buildings of London, I would just like too point out too, I swear, we've had a ridiculous amount of sunny days, more than how much we had in the previous summer, or is it just me going crazy.

Not long until it tops out. Less than ten floors to go.
