this is looking so good.
I love the way London has a recurring theme of having triangles in its skyscrapers. I.e. The Gherkin, Heron Tower, The Shard (a big triangle), Broadgate and now the Leadenhall!

It's not only triangles, it's the whole "high-tech" architecture style, wich was in a good part born and evolved in London, thanks to Norman Foster and Richard Rogers among other british architects, and it's also the style of Renzo Piano, The Shard's architect. And it's my favourite architecture!

If any single man should be credited for the London skyline, it would be Buckminster Fuller.

i think boris johnson deserves to be credited too as he is the one who approved many proposed projects to become reality.

LOL for all the pictures of London you spam everywhere you are clueless, Boris wasn't even around when this and most of the other City towers were approved.

They were approved by the City of London planning committee at any rate.

definitely agree with you! London has such a revolutionary style...

the Old, the Magnificent, the Beautiful, the Period, and now the Super Modern Skyscrapers. Such a mix... so unique... so London.

I believe they are yes. I think they have already started work on it...

I may be wrong though.

The Leadenhall is looking like a true masterpiece. Beautiful building.

They are already halfway done with the recladding. (and the result is an even worse building imo)
