Now they just need to knock down that ugly bastard nearby which I think is Guys Hospital built in the bad old 70's.

Honestly, it feels like this building has been under construction for like 5 years. It needs to rise much faster. Other than that, beautiful building although i prefer the Pinnacle.

What are you on about? This is a fairly quick construction so far. Have some patience.
