To be honest I liked it before, but I changed my opinion. It looks like a rather flimsy attempt to give it a futuristic look. On first sight it looks like an awesome walkway between the two towers, but it's actually just some beams. put in between 2 cylindrical towers... I think it won't turn out that special.

I'm assuming the exterior will look essentially the same - apart from perhaps the base.

The only thing the kills originality is imitation, whereas London's historical significant buildings will remain untouched and the new will be unique and will give this major city its individuality that's not seen in any other major city around the globe.

What I like about all these new developments is that they largely replace ugly buildings and the more beautiful building only look better as a result by not been next to ugly.
