Typically, turbines in the roof look stupid, but this tower does it well.

The turbines are incredible; I wonder what percentage of the building's power will be supplied by them?

Only problem with this tower is its location....one of the most drab and depressing areas of South London....a 60's concrete wasteland.

Its now in the process of being regenerated with new towers like this, but its gonna be 5-10 years before thats complete.
