I don't know what I should think about this building?! The cladding is great but it's form is so... fat. If it would be 100m higher it would look amazing I think.

If you think it's too fat then why would you want it to be taller? It would have too domineering a presence, and would block views even more from many directions.

Because the original design was 190m and was quite a bit thinner, the width increase was to keep a similar amount of floorspace with a lower height.

I only think it looks out of proportion in it's area, there have to be more tall towers close to it. Such as the 52-54 Lime Street.
