I know I am behind the times, but I clocked this for the first time just now - WOW! Excellent render, best I have seen of any building. 122LH has always been my favourite planned London tower, and this render confirms my excellent taste!

Yep, me too, if i could only see one tower built out of ALL the proposals, it would be this one. Two of the worlds best (Gherkin & 122) side by side.

Not too keen on the yellow ladder effect on the back of the building but I'm sure it'll grow on me.

I like the colour, brings more diversity to the skyline, and should look pretty

I personally like the colourful back-side:
