I kind of rather had seen it being built at Canary Wharf because of the density of high rises in that area ... but nonetheless, it is a beautiful building.

@Anthony SE1

"Metal rising on top" - That's a hydraulic jack being removed from the inside of the rig.

I sometimes wonder when I see above picture what would have happened if CW would not have been developed. All those square meters in CW could have been in the city instead and if you merge the two skylines in above picture...
