Skyscraper Update: Heron Tower Becomes Tallest In City
http://londonist.com/2009/12/skyscra...?gallery0Pic=2
29th December 2009

The City of London has a new tallest building. The Heron Tower, at 110 Bishopsgate, has reportedly surpassed Tower 42 to become the loftiest in the Square Mile. When it tops out, presumably in just a matter of weeks, the roof will stand at 202.5 metres, compared with the 183 metres of Tower 42. And once it is crowned with a lance-like spire, Heron will soar to 246 metres, beating the height of even 1 Canada Square.

It's a little bit grey and a trifle dull at this stage, and Heron will never match the gherkin or even 1 Canada Square as an iconic building. But renders of the completed structure do suggest a reasonably handsome and well-proportioned addition to the skyline. As the main shot above attests, this one's going to look its best at night.

Tomorrow, we'll check out progress on the Pinnacle next door, and then the Shard at London Bridge on Wednesday.

3 floors and the spire to go, already looks massive from that angle.

great shot Milky, the colour of the light in London at the moment is fantastic to photograph - beautiful red sunsets and sunrises, stainless steel blue early day and then rich gold, yellowy, orange afternoon.

Wonderful picture, Heron Tower will give a bit of more density to the City of London!
