The light makes a huge difference to how I feel about this tower. In morning or evening light, or at night this is a gem. At the height of summer it's also brilliant. I don't like it in normal daylight though, it just looks so dead on a typical grey London day. Does anyone else agree?

The shape prevents it looking dead, no matter the weather.

The Height is Wrong. The Height is 1,017 Feet Tall 310 Meters. Offensive for Downgrading this world class building skyscraper. London, England here.

Cheers Nikonov_Ivan, well said. Also, even though the viewing gallery is now open the other levels are still undergoing internal fit out.
