I'd say tear it down while you still can.

Lol? As soon as you give it a chance and you see it's f*cked, you want to tear it down afterwards? It's a waste of money. London's skyline is getting real nice and compact in the citycenter, and then it get's ruined by this way too fat tower that blocks the view from multiple sides!

So we've got The Pinnacle, Leadenhall and Fenchurch Street (Walkie Talkie) all on the move now! This is fantastic news, I'm genuinely excited! I hope they start a race.

Also the render posted by wjfox has completely removed my doubts about the building. It appears very slender, yet also curvy, in a way that isn't going to jar with its surroundings - which was my biggest concern.
