I'm also going to say the Shard and then the Pinnacle. I can't believe how many icnonic tall buildings London will have in just a few years time!

Are we going to ever see any meaty buildings or are they all going to look cheap and makeshift from now on.
If you look at the nat west tower(tower 42?) and canary wharf(canada no1?) they look chunky and well built to last, but now all the new towers look like they would all collapse and disintegrate in unison if we ever had another IRA bomb attack. Does anyone else agree.

Pinnacle (Helter Skelter) for me. It's just a shame that the glorious original design was shortened.

Does anyone have a comparative "then and now" pair of renders, perchance? Being brazen, I know, but it's quite hard to find the original renders around.

The Pinnacle - awesomest skyscraper ever, if only it'd be built!
The Shard - Well...why not?
Riverside South - Underrated, dont forget it'll be CW's tallest!
The Walkie-Talkie (20 Fenchurch) - Coz itz cool!
