A (very) brief clip from the forthcoming film, Measured Sacrifice, an anti-war film set in the year 2028. The Leadenhall Building can be seen in the background:

This is being produced by Arbor Avenue Films and they used one of my renderings for the backdrop.

OMG it seems to me that every major city in Europe has a better highrise growth than Frankfurt.... And that is only because of the f*** Greens in the city council!

This project is now 'on hold', due to the credit crunch. I give up with London.

The economic cycle will rebound and in some two years time, the tower will start again. I am sure it is not dead.

I don't think they suspended it for long time. In London they won't leave an enormous hole just inside the city's cluster (will they ). I think that soon it will go upwards!

It was scheduled for completion in 2011, but now it will be 2012, just like The Shard so its not all bad.
