I cannot stress enough and to many times how hideous that spire of Chelsea Tower is, a real sore to the eye. Deep down i hope they will remove it one day .

if they just put that antennae in the center, instead of off

Not to repeat things again, but we know already why they didn't put the antena centrally on top of the ball.
