Congrats London.
There's your supertall landmark. Amazing.

Nice to see some elegant supertalls once in awhile.

Simply divine! What a building.... one of the worlds most beautiful.

I still think they should install some powerful lighting into the top section that points upwards creating the illusion of more height. Like the lighting they used in New York to mark the positions the twin towers used to fill.

Although it could end up looking like Superman's fortress of solitude.

I suspect this is very likely to happen.

Something like this shining from the top of Shard would look awesome.

I don't normally comment on threads like this but this really has got to be close to being if not the best looking tower in the world.

It's just plain and simple. AMAZING!

Technically speaking, isn't this now the World's Tallest Pyramid?
