do not forget that some french companies (artefactory, luxigon, labtop...) are doing a great work of rendering for the most prestigious architect.
Even the renders of LBT has been done by french... ohlala

Suprisingly I don't think the renders of LBT are the best of the London projects. IMO the Cityscape 3D one of 122 Leadenhall is probably the best, they did an amazing job with that, it looks 100% real.

These new Gan renders are great too. The tower should be a nice addition to the 'new' cluster when renovated.

nice project

The restructuring of the tower is been carried out while maintaining the look traditional skyscraper, but also giving it a modern and futuristic image.

Did I said we're doing the most realistic ever seen in the most global world? I don't think so...
I agree with you, Cityscape3D are doing the best renders ever seen. I just wanted to precise that some french companies are recognized for doing a great work, and even for english people (what a consecration!)... some of them are forgetting it...

I don't know about the renovation project. The new portion may ruin the existing tower's Greek cross groundprint. I would have built something similar to the existing tower in South Africa.

Nice design...not spectactular, but nicely proportioned , this is the perfect addition to LD IMO!
And even though it won't be possible for it to take the attention from the 3 supertalls-Tour Signal, Phare and Generali- this tower definetily will set own accents in the LD skyline...

Btw i wonder that there're only 48 floors on this tower...with a roof height of 236 m, that means that the average floor height must be around 4.8 m, which is around 1 m higher than what's usual for office buildings...and I can't discover any spaces in the renderings where the floors would exceed average height by much...but probably the ceiling just will be very high i guess...
