Columbus would have transformed Canary Wharf for the better.

The google earth model of the taller tower doesn't match the renders - and yes, such a pity about Columbus

Yes my GE model - replicating the plans - does match the rendering. The angle is just different. Hence you can't see the roof in the official rendering.

I'd say it is one of the more boring proposals. It's good for CW, and a good height too, but it doesn't stack up next to Leadenhall, Bishopsgate Tower or The Shard

The first render seems to show the side of the tower undgulating out a bit, is this how it is, or will it be a flat wall?

Yes, imposed by the CAA. Tower Hamlets have also recently approved a masterplan for the area whereby One Canada Square stays the pinnacle of the cluster.

Yes, 240m hense the apparent flatness of Canary Wharf on the wjfox's last render.

To Jef: Will both the towers' slopes near the top be at the same height? Judging by the Google Earth model, that would look quite impressive.

Yeah but Canary Wharf is all about density, and North Quay will add that in abundance. It's an exiting propect.

How does Pelli still get work? Dull, dull, dull. Suppose they are relatively cheap.

Didn't say it wasn't an exciting project, not considering the area anyway. I said it was boring architecture. It's not that bad, but I'm more of a Riverside South kinda guy
