I agree with Tubeman's point about the square st. Helen's.. it is already an amazing experience with Lloyds, 51 Lime Street, and Swiss re and with Tower 42 creeping into view too. But throw in Bishopsgate Tower and 122 Leadenhall... and i just can't imagine what the impact will be like standing in that square. Such an understated square and completely dominated by such a spectacular collection of world class architecture.

I agree with Nothingbettertodo's point about some who are incredibly defensive, it erodes credibility and isnt helpful. I also feel some are a little harsh on those who contribute and genuinely post erroneous material by accident... these types of posters don't deserve the lashings they get, it's a little rude.

I agree with you Munch. Not everyone on here is an expert, and some of us know very little about those little details many take for granted. Some people on here are too harsh with those who may not know that a project has been approved for example. Sure they could have read the entire thread but its not always feasible.

Anyway roll on the good work, its all great stuff isnt it

yeah indeed the site is very addictive! in a good way tho. the only 1 annoying thing is, is reading about all the news and developments and getting excited only to learn that some of these are years off, ( i want everything to start construction NOW) lol

Its not often you see a rendering of how the building is likely to look. That looks stunning though. I'm sure many people would mistake that for a photo.

That render is awesome indeed, never seen such a photorealistic one of a skyscraper.

The building looks great, my fav "approved" in London after The Shard.

Looks awfull, disaster of a scraper, who on Earth is going to occupy the top floors. If the scraper wasn't sliced and was a complete rectangle it would of been thrown out of hand during the planning stage. Yet another pathetic attempt for London at getting a skyline.

Urgh, well how constructive of a statement for you to make.
Of course it wouldn't have been accepted if it was rectangular, because that would have been bland! It being this shame IMO (and in a lot of other people's too) it becomes a very interesting piece of architecture. It's colourful as well. I'm pretty sure there are hundreds, if not more, skyscrapers out there that are much blander, as they are big grey boxes, heck, London has plenty of those already in Canary Wharf. 122 Leadenhall is a great step forward for London.
And the attempts at getting the skyline in the City aren't pathetic, almost every building that is planned (with the exception of one), has been stunning, beautiful, world class architecture.

The tower is designed to be multi-tenanted so the upper floors can cater for smaller firms.

I think you're an utter moron who deserves to be kicked in the balls.

You are of course entitled your opinion but making BS comments like this really doesn't help you mate. Keep going, keep making personel comments against well respected members. Lets see where that gets you eh

You're right, its crap... I dearly hope it doesn't get built
