I've always liked this tower, has both a classy & modern design. I'm happy it's on track .

I thought they wouldn't be building this one without a pre-let but there's a crane on site?

Yes. But after great proposals for the Walkie Talkie and Cheesgrater, lousy, boxy groundscrapers will be built at Broadgate and at the Legal & General site and now this.... Moreover, who knows what will become of the Helter Skelter?

The video is good. It reveals some nice angles.

Ah moustache, si tu n'existais pas, il faudrait t'inventer...

I've always liked it. Although the top is boxy & quite plain looking, the base really is interesting and shows some very nice angles & faces. Let's hope that the cladding will be up to it.. It will be a good addition .

But the boxiness is good! you can't always have helter-skelters and various kitchen utensils filling the place! boxiness brings the skyline "back down to earth" and increases the value of the "unusual" towers i.e gherkin, 20FC, leadenhall etc, having everything quirky would kill off the concept of quirky!

Slightly better than a box I guess . I personally think London deserves better but hey , boxes are built for a reason so I guess we should be thankful that it looks like it's made of quality materials at least .

I didn't realize this was going to be so prominent in the skyline, as in the above picture! It may look good as a filler, and may give the city skyline more balance since it seems to have a height in between that of the lowrise and the taller towers.

I was wrong it's as tall as Heron almost, I see from watching the video, too boxy for such a prominent place in the skyline.

The above render looks superb! I think this building will add some much needed filler the the City cluster - if it was another 'landmark' tower Central London would look like a loony's play pen with too many weird designs in such a small area...

Having said that this building isn't plain, its still interesting, just not in an in-you-face kind of way like Leadenhall and Bishopsgate Tower

That render is top notch quality. I wasn't very enthusiastic about this one but that render changed this.
