I don't know how accurate this render is but this tower will be very elegant and sophisticated.

You guys must be having some really nice weather in London recently. This thing is growing like a weed.

Were those two shots from July 9th and October 13th taken from Greenwich?

This is only for my curiosity, anyone asked how this structure will react to a plane crash? I mean, is the lack of a concrete structure/core penalizing?
Mind I know nothing about civil structures...
