These tops are looking decidedly weak, verging on the silly. I hope they will surmont them with projecting canopies as in the renders, otherwise thumbs down from me.

Another tower with silly 'hats' for crowns. This should have been another thick 'stone' ledge to top the penthouse with a glass edge to hide the plant and give final definition to the form. What is it with London that it can't get these final details that make so much difference right?

Alan Yau has announced he is opening the restaurants at Wardian - one being a Chinese river cafe - should be a real draw to this development.

Looks like they are starting on the 'cap' so we won't end up with yet more high rise portacabins

This is good news. The area needs some life drawn into it.

All that discussion about the crowns it looks nothing like the renders that were shown here and actually more like how I thought they should be- and they look great!

London's own twin towers. Success, although I think rounded corners would have provided a more succinct finish.

I like their angular shape.

With all the white they look very much like somewhere in Miami

One of my favorite towers in recent years.
