Amazing shot. I'm really looking forward to the roof garden being completed and actually seeing the roof come together.

Which tower is meant to be completed first? 20 Fenchurch or 122 Leadenhall? O_o

i suppose the construction of 20 FCS tower will be completed first. a reliable source confirmed that the LHB will be finished in the mid-2014.

This building is shaping up nicely, its not as bulky as I has expected from the renders (there seemed to be so many different changes to the design) I love to look up at this tower, it's very dominating from street level.

20 FCS Being late 2013 or early 2014?

Wow. 2014 is going to be such a good year for architecture in London.

Well construction of the roof is slower than the main section of the tower so I guess the updates will be more sparse than should usually be expected. I can see it from my office window and I haven't seen much news worthy progression in the last week. Just an idea

Ahhhh okay sweet. Thanks for the micro-update haha. And yeah it makes sense that there wont be updates until the roof really kicks into action I guess.

Agreed with "ThatOneGuy".... It is by no means ugly. London is unorthodox and different - 20 Fenchurch suits London perfectly where it could not anywhere else.

The London Skyline is slowly becoming one of the worlds leading... 20 Fenchurch is contributing.

For me it's too large and at the moment is too farmaway from the core and it's not the shard which looks great alone.

I really like the city developments but I have another concern: it's getting too densier, this is why imho canary wharf is the best skyscraper cluster in europe, even if it's mostly traditional.

beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so i am not going to say the city skyline is more beautiful. but, imo it is more interesting than the canary wharf.
