Is it going to get much taller? Love this building!
Your wish is my command.

I think construction is up to the area shaded in red at the moment.

You sure that's right? It's divided up into 8 sections and from this it looks like they are only at the 6th section.

London IS the dream destination for HighTech-architecture lovers, such as me.

That tower looks like a tumor or a fungus, not a "walkie talkie".

no matter how it looks like, it is a fantastic addition and it makes the city skyline even denser.

The Leadenhall Building is tall, slim and futuristic.

The "walkie talkie" is low, fat and ugly.

Anyway, it's your point of view and your town, you do what you want with your skyline.

It looks like a sore thumb. That's what I'm always going to call it.

What a mess this walkie talkie!

It is so shame to see the greatness of The Leadenhall Building completly wasted by this spot.

That must be "english humor"

whereas the leadenhall, gherkin and shard ponce about in high heels with their impractical floor plates trying to catch a glimpse of their makeup in the windows of neighbouring buildings; 20 fenchurch street is the one people actually need when there's work to be done. she one curvy big mama who will roll up her sleeves and actually help out. strong back, massive tits and great sense of humour.

Alright, enough trolling already. Take the fat walkie discussion elsewhere please. No need for some people here to repeat their opinion about it three times on the same page in a thread about a different project.
