Brilliant tower. Best design I've seen for a long while and a perfect location to match. I just hope all of Londons upcoming skyscrapers are this beautiful over the coming years and inevitable high-rise boom. I'd hate to see the face of our city scarred by over eager development.

It's not that, it's that alot of people didn't want skyscrapers in the city.

There are very few locations where supertalls could be built in London. Frankly I'm amazed LBT got through the planning process - there are height limits everywhere, along with protected views, historic areas, and a whole army of NIMBY's, politicians, journalists and heritage groups who do their utmost to oppose anything tall. Then you have the enormous project costs, which can run into hundreds of millions. Also, it's easier to find tenants for the shorter buildings, as most corporations in the City prefer large floorplates. For developers, it's just too difficult, too risky and too expensive. I think LBT is a "one off", and after it's built we won't see another supertall for decades.

<offtopic> I should have know it also that it was a cathedral since I walked passed it last year

@wjfox: You could be right but on the other hand it also could be the first of...I mean maybe people will see, that after this gem is finished, that super tall buildings don't have the ruin thing concerning views etc for the city....who know's let see after this one if finished (which still is a few year away...)

The crown could look a bit awkward since it's so huge. It looks to be a quarter of the building's total height.

I agree. It's way too much without floor inside. Quite a cheap trick to get the offical height increased if you ask me. But well, it IS part of the silouhette and structure, and at least it's no darn spire!!
