It could almost go up without the glass, like a cheese-grating Eiffel tower.

From yesterday:



















And the steelwork is starting to become visible from vantage points such as Tower Bridge:

Hmmmm.... Every building that is under construction in the city is in this render... apart from one.






Such a shame, I was really excited about a race of construction between Pinnacle and Leadenhall.

I love the Leadenhall but that they should re design tower to the right.

I'm not surprised that London chose an Industrial theme to most of their new buildings.

Incredible picture, this area of London is going to be amazing, you'll walk through the quaint untouched beauty of pre war bank/Cornhill and be met with lloyds, willis and the leadenhall, a mess of futurism...

The most futuristic city in the world? This is not true at all. Look at Shanghai...Shanghai has the right to be the most futuristic city.

Nervertheless, London is going to be the most futuristic city in Europe, beside Moscow. And those towers going up are amazing!

Love this tower - it's nice to see it rising at a steady pace.

I am excited that this gets its chance to be the tallest in the city for a while before Pinnacle overtakes it. I have always liked this one better and didn't want it to get lost in the crowd right away. I like Pinnacle too but let's give the Leadenhall its moment in the sun!

I am glad to see this monster rising. With this one, London will ensure a prominent place in Europe's pantheon of tall metropolises. Excellent!!!
