Thanks for all the update pictures.

I’m worried that various fears about perceived security threats are going to result in some late planning applications to change the ‘public’ space at the bottom of the building into a secured private space.

I’m certain that a ring of vehicle proof bollards will end up encircling the space. All it takes is for one pushy health and safety jobsworth to make it their mission and it’ll happen.

I’d also be amazed if the space was even remotely public in feel. Security will prevent photos being taken in the space as is the way with all private ‘public’ spaces within buildings. Look no further than the generous ‘public’ space under Foster and Partners’ Tower Place next to the Tower of London. If you try to take a photograph there, security will actually run towards you to stop you.

I also wouldn’t be surprised if one or two controlled entrances were set up along a new perimeter to allow access into the space. Again, someone will raise the security question and insist than anyone entering the space is checked for explosives or guns. I imagine airport style security gates will be installed for public visitors and swipe cards will be used for office workers.

If this ends up feeling like a truly public space, as is shown in the visualisation above, I’ll eat my hair. Although I hope I’m proved wrong.

Wait but one question, why don't I see a core on this building like the shard and the Leadenhall building?

Fix'd. Honestly, I don't know why Fenchruch has a core and this dosen't. Fenchurch is shorter and bulkier, so a core there dosen't make as much since IMO.

This IS the Leadenhall building

About frenchurch street, i think it's because there was a building there and they dismantled it but left its core.

I know. Reread his post again. It's written like he's comparing Leadenhall to Leadenhall. Leadenhall dosen't have a core. Fenchurch does. It should be reversed.

I see, I had edited the post but it seems I didn't send it...
About Frenchurch, I thought it was because they had left the core of the original building, but now I see I was wrong.
