There have been a number of design changes, some of the older renders did make it appear to be asymmetrical.

I really like this newer symmetrical design. I didn't like the top before but it has grown on me. Overall, it looks like it will be a beauty. Congrats London!

BTW, thanks Munch

just re-noticed guys tower in the picture there, haha, the planners here in clifford estates are designing the next phase of the clifford hospital scheme to be taller than guys and take the title of worlds tallest hospital, clifford hospital already should be in the top 50 tallest hospitals with 20 floors but since clifford is so unheard of outside guangzhou it hasnt gotten much notice

Trust me, I don't think anyone gives a toss whether Guy's is the tallest hospital in the world or not, its universally detested as an eyesore here.

I think this building is fantastic, and should be built. It will be such an icon tower for London! You people from the UK should be happy, this is an amazing building.

Construction won't start until the 100m building on site is demolished. There is already ground-testing underway and people are due to be leaving this building in September. Timescale:

Work has started on site for the 100m building to be demolished, current occupiers are on site.

Why do you not like The Shard or London? Seriously, if you don't explain why, instead of just sniping every now and then. Because that is the impression I get from you.

Do you think you could bring yourself to actually read the thread before posting silly comments?

We are awaiting the current highrise on the site to be vacated (Southwark Towers) such that it can be demolished... This is abundantly clear if you bothered reading the thread properly.

indeed...
