Best midrise proposal in London imo.

For those who aren't sure of the location, click here and then look for "Castle House" which is its other name.

London's famous for it's buildings shapes, but they are all very tasteful. This one's been nicknamed the razor or giant razor, 122 Leadenhall the cheese grater, Beetham Tower the boomerang, 30 St Mary's Axe the gherkin, bishopsgate tower/pinnacle the helter skelter, 20 Fenchurch Street the walkie talkie and the Shard, commonly known as London Bridge Tower.

LOL Only 3m from being a skyscraper? Where does it say 150m qualifies a scraper to be one?...and I agree - a mid-riser is from 50-60m or thereabouts, not 147m.

BTW The renders look fantastic!

Most people agree on 150m as the lower limit for a skyscraper -

Oh well, it's all relative. Where I reside, 147m is *not* a mid-riser & our tallest stucture in the Sydney CBD is 306m.

BTW Is this beautiful "mid-riser" going to be an apartment scraper, offices or mixed-use?

Well then perhaps the correct term in high-rise. Because calling it a mid-rise is plain stupid.

It's simply a way of classifying the height range. Compared to the likes of LBT, Bishopsgate, Heron, etc. this tower is pretty average. 150m serves as a good cut-off point between mid-range towers and proper 'skyscrapers'. Once you get above that height, buildings really start to soar.

Beautiful.

With respect to the height issue, isn't the fabulous new Willis Tower about 150m as well? For that matter, most of London's new current "skyscrapers" aren't tall. For example, Swiss Re and the Walkie Talkie are all 600 feet or less. They're awesome nonetheless.

Personally I think 0-50 Low Rise. 50-90 Mid Rise. 90-150 High Rise. 150-300 Skyscraper 300+ Supertall.

Definitely not a mid rise.
