You might well be correct about the surface of the cladding.

But that still wouldn't account for the clear joins between each panel. That's what bothers me most, given that the renders suggested a seamless flow.

Well, yes, something like that is what I'm still hoping for.

But it's looking ominously like the finished product, IMO.

What else could they do? They can't just lift one whole big piece up.

If someone stood as far away as the perspective of the full-building render, they probably wouldn't be able to distinguish the cladding sections.

Closer renders show the cladding split into sections.

Just the ones which are 100m+

22 Bishopgate (Pinnacle) - 280(?)m - Demo
100 Bishopgate - 172m - Site Prep
40 Leadenhall Street - 154m - Approved
Heron Plaza - 135m - On Hold
52-54 Lime Street (Scalpel) - 192m - Site Prep
1 Angel Court - 101m - U/C

Fairly nearby you've got Principal Place as well, which is 161m, of which the low rise part is U/C
