I cant wait to be honest, being an SE1 lad this will be amazing for the area...although I really am disliking the baby shard with every time I clap my eyes on it, it gets worse kinda ruins it a wee bit....oh yeah and I hope they dont fook up Borough Market, they want to make a Tesco style entrance for it yuk!

very impressive design....i always respect designers and developers that favour a bit of the design and sacrifice the maximum area boxy shapes designs.

Reminds me a little of that one building in the movie IRobot. It's very futuristic and cosmopolitan.

Man this is such a great looking building, but I can't believe how long it takes for London to get started on a project! They won't even get the people out of the old building until September?!

I just Can't stand hat london is turning into.... all these tall buildings! it just seems to out of character! Skyscrapers are for modern american cities not classical, beautiful european ones! I would like this tower almost anywhere else in the world... but this is real estate and its all about location, location. so i just can't bring myself to even appreciate the architecture without thinking of how much it doesn't belong.
