Yer, that'd work, or you could just walk away and shout back from the other side of the street "we're no longer friends"

The new rendering looks much better than the original... I agree the proportions are
better.

This building is fantastic. It is subtle and understated but it grabs you by the balls. Its got small guy attitude. Just like T42. It doesn't reach for the sky in a vain attempt to command respect. It shouts out, do i look like i give a ****! I really hope this building gets built. City freak show? Bollocks. A well crafted, timeless chess set at war with Canary Wharf.

I hated this tower at first, but these pics have really improved my opinion now. The curvature and proportions seem a lot better:

That is a really cool looking building. I hope it gets built.

Apparently, this was a previous design which they considered for this site -

I simply CAN'T BELIEVE they chose this design instead -

You cant seriously believe that will get PP in its current form..do you?, i mean this is London were talking about.

Who is going to want that POS looming over them, it will simply dominate the entire area.

I know LBT will do the same thing, but at least that looks decent.

Where's this new one gonna go relative to that? I work at Tower bridge and the view of the skyline as you cross it is fantastic- such variety- and only gonna get better with some of these additions. I do hate the phone/TV one though.
