Stunning, you have the makings of a fantastic landmark here. I'm going to be watching this baby rise with an eager eye. London is being transformed into a city of science fiction.

I read up on this building. It is almost double the height of the demolished building that it is replacing, yet it only has 2 more floors? I guess the floor-ceiling height on each floor is rather big.

I don't know where you got that bit from - the old one was 91m and had 25 floors, this one has 36 floors.

EDIT: Ah I see Wikipedia got their (edited) facts wrong... Yeah the original building had 25 floors, not 34.
