Would love to see the view from the very top on the 87th floor, but sadly the public aren't allowed up there

I wonder how the view from the observation deck compares to the London Eye when the capsule is on top?

It's more than twice as high. There's quite a difference!

Cracked did a very funny article about 7 Iconic skylines that almost looked ridiculous; and it appeared London was very close with your ***** tower :P http://www.cracked.com/article_20210...idiculous.html



And the iconic Tower Bridge might have been replaced with this~

Apologies if this has been covered, but will those red lights on the sides remain? If so I find that a disappointing feature, seeming out of sorts with everything else about the design.

Overall I think it's a fabulous structure, and perfect for London. Strikingly original, not over-the-top, yet every bit a showcase tower. Color me jealous.

While I can't disagree with you on the design bit, I find it rather striking that you call for a removal of these lights within a day of the tragic incident where a helicopter hit a construction crane a few miles away.

Should 'simplistic' really be considered an antonym to elegant?
