Almost fully cladded, it gets really massive. And what a glossy cladding ..

They must be busy right now with internal fittings I suppose.

This is the new crown of the town, looks really massive, like a Hero Tower, but nothing special from an architectiural viewpoint.

It isn't exactly cutting-edge, but IMO with the likes of the Pinnacle, Cheesegrater, Shard and 20 Fenchurch we needed more 'regular' (but high quality) buildings to create a balance.

I like it too, shows a really slender shiny building, brings a bit of 'normality' to the City's architecture.

The cladding is almost finished. Looking forward for the spire.

Brilliant tower in a sunny day .

As a matter of fact it is - it will have a spire on top, but the tower itself is only 202m high.
