nah, Guy's is still the cities tallest with its 323m. it's a bloody shame. But the queen her self told that Guy's was her all time favorite building. And no building should be taller than it. She actually also said, that she wanted to move there, and rename it to Men's Castle.

It's 300m officially but a building just shy of that range is often referred to be a supertall. Like 4wtc

I love the photo and think its one of the best angels to view both clusters from! Every time London is a banner, these are the kind of comments it always gets hence my use of sarcasm. And if you don't believe me take a look at all of the previous London banners. And its nice to meet you Kim!

Hmm, it seems like if you got this reaction last time you used "sarcasm" you wouldn't do it again.
