And we're not just talking about sticking new glass in there, that eastern end facade shown in the render above is a right mess, it had a motley collection of lean-to buildings built up next to it. here's the state of it just after they were demolished in 2013.

27 Commercial Road | Aldgate | 67m | 21 fl | Approved

A fine classic-modern design that'd suit any city with a tradition of brickwork. Well done, it'll likely turn out good.

Nice setbacks and overall structure:

I really do not think he's in a minority.

The Gherkin for 425 Park Avenue? Hell no. Not today, not ever would I do that trade. The Gherkin is more aesthetically pleasing on every level for that part of the City. It's a higher quality skyscraper.

I appreciate that 20 Fenchurch St is not the best looking tower in the world, but neither is 432 Park Avenue! Neither of the two are Vinoly's best work. Furthermore, 432 Park Avenue debatably looks just as out of place in that part of Midtown NYC! How much MORE would it look out of place at the 20FS site!?

Granted, One World Trade would look good in the Docklands area, but not the City.

So would they look better switched around? No.

432 Park Avenue is one of the most ridiculous looking buildings around.

Japanese developer plans 40-storey London tower
Aaron Morby | Fri 24th April | 0:01


Japan’s leading developer Mitsubishi Estate is to submit a planning application for a 40-storey office tower at the heart of the City of London.

The proposals for an office-led, mixed-use tower with public viewing gallery at the top have been designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects and resembles a stack of blocks.

The redevelopment of 6-8 Bishopsgate and 150 Leadenhall Street is rated as one of the most prized sites in the Square Mile nestled between the Cheesegrater and soon to be redeveloped site of the stalled Pinnacle building.

Thought a relatively nice looking skyscraper, I doubt it's ever going to be approved. The building looks to close for comfort with other surrounding projects, it just seems weird. I don't know what the rules and regulations might be regarding the closeness of a building but I believe that it really can't be that close, especially for it's height, size etc.

Does this sound prosperous?

(Side note: Be nice to me, it's my birthday tomorrow )

Oh and, nice building.

The City of London planners have no problem with the height or location so it’s almost certain to be approved with minimum fuss. It replaces a tower on the site that is around 100m. The Pinnacle replacement will be right next to the northern flank of this tower but again that won’t be a problem with approval. They are all in the designated City Cluster.

Excellent news. I don't mind the design either. It'll be a good filler! Looking forward to some more renders.

I wish 6-8 Bishopsgate or St. Helen's tower would be grade listed. They're great examples of International Style architecture when the UK was still an empire, and London was a powerful-looking city able to blend the old with the then-new.

I hear HSBC may be leaving London and relocating their headquarters to Asia. Is this going to effect London's standing as a world financial center ?.
