This building nicely contributes to the city skyline.

London is not a museum city where anything is built in order to look good, but it is a working city where the money is made and the businesses are run.

New towers are now being built in order to accommodate more staffs, people, residents and bankers etc. The more towers, the better.

No, the more quality towers which work in the context of their surroundings, the better. I'm not someone who thinks high-rise developments are bad (quite the opposite), and I love London's growing skyline. So please don't dismiss my point of view on this tower by trotting out the old-line about London not being a museum city. I'm not in the EH brigade and have been on SSC for six years posting in London threads.

This tower is so amazing.

It looks fantastic. At evening/night time will there be any sort of special lights on the tower?

I would imagine some sort of lighting alighned with the fins would look quite spectacular.

Wow, that last photo is excellent. Canary Wharf fills in the gap left by 20FS.

anyway, i just love this tower. yes, it is a bit on the thick side, but i don't see how it would ruin the skyline in any way.

All that glass is just amazing - such high quality.

20 FS really is shiny! Like a brand new shiny Pokemon card from childhood.

Not many cities in the world can boast what London possesses. A city of contrast, old and new buildings perfectly and impressively integrated.

Modern skyscrapers are going up right next to the buildings which are more than hundred or thousand years old.

You won't find this kind of fascinating juxtaposition in many other world capitals.

Completely agree.

Amazing close up. It's awesome to see the scale of the tower compared to people.

Just looking at the official 20FS Website...

LOOK at the letting... Only 13 floors are left to let and it hasn't even opened. This is crazy.
