True. Yet it is taller than Center Point which is 117 m (385 ft) high and which looks skyscraper-ish when viewed form the (Oxford Steet) ground.
It will actually be taller than Euston Tower too.

How did this escape my notice? I like the shape and height of this but im not too keen on the verticle window arrangement, it seems a bit dated/boring :/

I don't think it's too short, especially considering the purpose of the building and the location of it. It's a nice addition to the Olympics Park.

I Agree, if it was any higher it would look too tall compared to the surrounding buildings, and would look slightly lonely...
