I think it looks quite nice... so long as they keep it clean it will last well. Thought this was gonna be a short stumpy looking building (despite the figures given for its size) when I first saw construction photos.... definately looking like it will make a nice impact now.

Nice updates for Canary Wharf. It looks that it is having a residential highrise boom right now. In a few years the skyline would look great.

^ Yes it is. High rise residentials UC around Canary Wharf are at these heights:

- 147m (50 floors)
- 140m (44 floors)
- 131m (43 floors)
- 122m (38 floors)
- 104m (32 floors)
- 098m (30 floors)

Groundwork has also begun on Richard Rogers' 215m and 189m Riverside South office towers.
