I like the first proposal best, I think it's the curve in the building that I liked. If given a choice between proposal 2 or 3, I'd have to go with the 3. London is rock'n.

The tower seems to have a spire that takes it up to about 140m-145m

I love Canary Wharf's skyline because it is so clean cut and organized.

Lol -I dont particuarly like it for those exact same reasons. Each to there own I suppose.

A curve or two in the canary wharf would do wonders to the place instead of every building seemly designed with a pencil & a ruler.

Yeah, totally. Just look at the effect the Ontario Tower is having. Not really tall enough for its own separate thread here in the World Forums, but worth a quick mention here -







(for those who can't immediately spot it, it's the midrise u/c to the right of HSBC!)

It's odd that the new buildings in The City are nice, and yet the ones in CW are shite.
