Shame they aren't next to each other tbh - that would look badass

Does anyone know if there is a plan to put something in that gap next to the Pinnacle?

The Shard beats the pinnacle on architecture but the Pinnacle looks better location-wise in the London CBD

The Pinnacle is kinda gaudy and gross. The Shard is awesome.

Here Darloeye, I just had a go. That rendering shows the original higher version of the Pinnacle (I think) so it was slightly harder to get the sizes right, but it gives you an idea!)

Thanks !

Think the Shard is better where it is and having the pinnacle in the city looks better
