That tower was what annoyed me most about Oxford Street. Glad to see it gets a makeover, hopefully it'll look substantially better from the street.

You might be right, but as the city of london cluster expands and merges with the the other clusters going up around it, and all the 20fl+ aldgate residentials, would we still call it the 'city cluster' just a bigger expanded one. I suppose that does make sense

It caught me by (pleasant) surprise, I didn't know that it would be at the square. Glad I decided to walk to the station.

It's great watching 100 Bishopsgate, the Scalpel, one angel court and Heron plaza rising together in the COL. It will to give a density and height boost to the city cluster. Also the 278m Bishopsgate tower which is about to begin construction in the city cluster aswell. Multiple cores rising right next to each other will make for some cool pics. With the other towers rising in and around them, central London will look like core city.

Yeah, it's called one the best bus systems in the world. You can get anywhere from Oxford street by bus in matter of 5 min of waiting time. Where esle can you do this?
