thanks for the comments chaps. this tower will get the city extra office spaces, although it's design is not the most appealing and striking.

Well, some people including me might disagree to an extent, it's certainly not an elegant tower, but I still think it's incredibly striking and unique in its own right. I personally can't wait to see its profile appear properly on the skyline.

most people from the continent and also the majority of londoners find this building quite ugly and they also think this tower will ruin the london skyline

But there are also a lot of people who love it. Don't worry, people are entitled to their opinion, I'm fine with that - I have no problem with people who dislike the tower and I can see their side of the argument...it just appeals to me, I guess.

I think the origional 190m version would have been better... it seemed more sleek...

The appearence of this building still doesn't make it any less interesting to me though, its being quite good to watch...

I don't know about all the criticism, it's an interesting design and if nothing else, a good filler to the overall skyline.

Not every building of this scale can or should be a landmark like the shard. We need good quality yet more mediocre buildings thrown in to balance the overall skyline for years to come - especially as more and more are added.

At least it is interesting, unique, got style to it and a talking point - whether good or bad.

I dislike the tower, not so much for its design per se but its impact because of its location. Would be fine somewhere else in London.

Still, now it's going up I guess I might as well get used to it...
