Meh!

..it's in that dead-zone of uninteresting heights, 100-140m, too short to ever be noticed as anything other than background filler.

Developers, if you're going to build a tower, go 150m+ or don't bother going over 100m.

Many of the world's greatest skylines are made of background fillers.

The 2014 scheme was for 228 meters, that was rejected.

Limited public benefit and development are far too dense for such a small site. In practice, it would've off been 8 meters taller than Newfoundland and 3 meters than The Leadenhall Building.

It would have ruined the heritage view from Greenwich apparently .. You know the one hundreds of thousands of tourist trek to and take pictures of maritime Greenwich in the foreground with about 3 dozen tall buildings in the background.

This tower site sits slap bang in the middle of it. The Heritage view dodged a bullet on that one.
