I think this tower is kind of strange because it is only 181m tall but it will have 49 floors which is as much as 1CanadaSq (235m), is it because this is a residential tower?

Yes generally office buildings will need ducting and other things that require higher floor plates, i thinks thats how it works anyway.

It's going to be crazy having such a tall building right on the river and so far away from the rest of the skyscrapers. The London skyline is going to look so huge in a couple of years.

Only 181 m tall? That's almost as tall as what the tallest skyscraper in the City used to be (Tower 42).

Nice pictures by Bullington:

Being such a sleek building I think it will look taller than it is.

I have to admit I thought this was out of place at first, but the ismple elegance of the design is growing on me.

This design is not exactly recent. It look a few years for this tower to get approved.

Somebody working on this tower explained in the UK forum that the core will rise in stages with lengthy pauses in between as the floors catch up.

Core wont be at full height until january/february 2012.
