    I work opposite right it, it does look good but it does look unfinished at the top like JReily said but it is meant to be like a Shard of glass so...

    Right so you mean your mum built it with her bare hands.. Hmm

    Just saying that's how it came across

    Take it she is an architect or contractor of some sort. Good work if she was involved, top three tallest buildings in the western hemisphere

    It's too funny that 'the city' has only a handful of decent sky scrapers we need shit loads more. The London skyline is so architecturally impoverished it's ridiculous. We would have had them if it hadn't been for that fucktard Charles. It took a leviathan battle between him and Ken Livingstone to get the Gherkin built now the flood gates have opened.

    We need them if we dont want to look like the poor retarded child of capital cities.

    I can only see 4 decent sky scrapers in that photo ffs..
