Perspective... The Heron is 130 metres away from the Gherkin.

Awesome, final floor is up, only the spire needs to be added to top out.

This tower has such an inelegant shape.
Architecturally speaking,it wont add anything to London.

Don't judge it 'til it's finished, the spire will make a big difference to your impression I think

It already has. The sweet cladding on this baby and the high level of overall quality simply sparkles. The eroded crown will evanesce to give a lightness to the tower. I don't think it was designed as a singular icon like the Gherkin, but it delivers an immense urban character to central London and will be awesome at night.

Those pics remind me from something.................

I think the spire is the worst part of the tower. I wish the spire could be changed into more skyscraper/glass.
