Of course if anyone's found any links to the drawings it'd be good to see them. I remember once when I found the "secret" pdf of the Burj Dubai indicating it's real height as 808 metres (back when the companies were saying officially it'll be taller than 500 metres, and there were rumours of anything from 600-1000m!)

Oh yes London sure has changed alot since my last visit on a school trip back in 1990 (i think) Canary Warf wasnt even finished then if I remember rightly. Thats when I found I love tall buildings - stood at the top of the Great Fire Monument looking out over London.

Are you serious ? Do some backtracking on this thread mate, and you'll soon get to grips with the project. The “small tower” is the secondary core. Just like the main structure, steel will be built up around it. The main users will be office workers. The office floors are from levels 4 to 28.

As this photo by gothicform demonstrates, London is getting a skyline to be proud of. There are 25+ buildings in this shot higher than 100 meters.

In front of the black tower to the right of the Gherkin, you can see a blue crane of a 288m tower U/C in the city.
what a magnificent photo. instantly you see whole of londons skyline
just quick question-the structure infront of shard in this pano, is that a chimney? if it is, must 300ft? its magnificent. im a chimney nut and you guys are lucky to have such a grand structure in your city.

That, my friend, is the Tate Modern

Check out Lister's Mill, Bradford. That chimney dominated my city's skyline.

Why did you remove the 412m chimney in Kazakhstan from your +400m structure diagram then?

Cull if you ever get to London make sure you go to Tate Modern, especially if you are a fan of industrial architecture. Nothing else like it.
