Looking great so far!
Can't wait for this to be completed, along with the 'fat' Walkie talkie.
What we need now is some more skyscrapers, and something to be done about the Pinnacle !

I wonder if Plantation Place and Minster Court will be redeveloped in 20 years. It seems like building 250m+ would be more profitable.

I'd say Minister Court should be the top priority to demolish (apart from that building with the multiple curved roofs to the left) because it appears to take up a lot more space than Plantation. Plus, Plantation is good filler whereas the Minister Court damages the skyline.



20 Fenchurch looks amazing in that shot.

As do I but the problem is something just as bad and probably more bulky will be approved. I think the city planners have done wonders with the skyscrapers (including 20 fenchurch, which has grown on a lot of people and will probably become quite iconic) but what has been planned and built on and near the riverfront is largely abysmal.

Ok, I thought I was clear.. Apparently not. Please take the walkie talkie bizznizz elsewhere. I don't really like handing out brigs and bans so it would be cool if you guys could stay on topic from now on. Thanks

Because as you can see you will be brigged otherwise. I am dead serious, please stay on topic.

Which building are you talking about? The one in the middle? Its actually one of the better ones on the City waterfront.

Yeah, the one to the left of the one under construction. It's not awful but I don't think it's anything special either, and something special is what the riverfront deserves. I'd prefer it stayed standing though if it was just going to be replaced by something like it's newer neighbors.

As for 122 Leadenhall, I love the shots showing both it and Lloyds together. The pics posted by Chest are stunning. I do wonder how it would have looked if Leadenhall had been flipped around, and it's backside was facing Lloyds. On the skyline it wouldn't have been as good but up close I think it would have been the most futuristic, sci-fi sight you could experience on this planet. It's already come pretty close the way it is in reality.
