Used one of the Shards renders (The towers should blend in better with the actual light too



Bit smaller



Keep in mind this is missing 3 150m+ buildings, and probably more in the future

Do you think Tower 42 and Swiss Re will accept their future family members?

Oh God yes!!!

What's that between Heron and DIFA? Is that the proposed 180m tower?
