What I don't like about this building, besides the fact that it looks a bit too fat, is the side cladding. It's the same "stripy" type of cladding that Tower 42 and 51 Lime Street have, and I think 2 buildings with that type of cladding are enough.

Its not the same cladding. Its a series of louvres which rise up & over the building for shading as well as aesthetic reasons.

Below is a screen cap of the louvre system from the link you posted london lad:




** Thanks for the vid wjfox2002, and the new renders london lad that you re-posted. I love the day & night views in the vid of The London Shard from the sky gardens and roof terrace.

I really like the look of this one. Bit of a shame it was cut down from 192m to 160m but still just as great IMO. Damn St Paul's Cathedral, damn it I say LOL

Mace tipped for Walkie-Talkie

2007 Issue 30

By Angela Monaghan

Developer Land Securities is understood to be on the verge of appointing Mace as construction manager on its 20 Fenchurch Street tower in the City of London, known as the “Walkie-Talkie”.

It is thought Land Securities has decided to use construction management as a procurement route, and it is understood Mace, which has provided pre-construction services, is a strong contender to land the job.

That would put Bovis Lend Lease, which was thought to be favourite to build the £205m tower, out of the picture.

The 39-storey building, designed by Rafael Viñoly, was granted planning permission by the government last month.

It unexpectedly became the subject of a public inquiry in November after the then communities secretary, Ruth Kelly, called it in.

English Heritage objected to the proposals for harming views of the City’s skyline and called for a “virtual zone” that would be free of skyscrapers between the City cluster and Tower Bridge.

The objections had stemmed from a Unesco report on London last year. Unesco’s World Heritage Committee strongly criticised the government for failing to protect views of the Tower of London and other world heritage sites, such as the Palace of Westminster and Westminster Abbey.

Most of Mace’s construction business is in construction management. In 2006 it contributed £33m of income across 82 projects.

Mace declined to comment.

A Land Securities spokesman said: “No definite decision has been made yet. We are just trying to get the right people for the right job.”

I don't know about the rest of you but this one's really grown on me now. This is the highrise they all hated at first but I can see this grabbing the headlines for all the right reasons for it's original clean design. Probably won't have the same publicity as 30 St Mary's axe though.

Yeah it really grew on me too, I hated it at first, but grew to accept it and now I am really looking forward to seeing it built.

Don't tell me we have to demolish another skyscraper from the bottom up again. I hate that crap. Every time we demolish a building from the bottom up, there's always the fear of floor collapse.

No this one will be different, they will be supporting the bottom floors so they can demolish from the top down apparantly.
