The Tower


London's skyline has changed significantly in recent years,  Each new towering building trying to outdo the last one.  Broadgate Tower was completed in 2009 at a cost of £240 million and with very little of the controversy encountered by some of the newer buildings.  Due in part to the developers meeting the concerns of the authorities and the public, that the building shouldn't intrude on the views from the Tower of London or St Paul's.

Construction was slow as the building sits over the rail line leading into Liverpool station and work stopped frequently for trains.  It is also unique compared to other recent lofty towers in that it has not been nicknamed by the public.  (Think cheese grater, walkie talkie, gherkin), however I think credit card might suit it what do you think?

Any would do as it still would not improve the look of it

It looks so flat, I can hardly imagine people can work in there! The credit card would do well I think.

I like your shot.

Knocking it down would improve the area.

That name fits. I even see the little silver card reader strip on the side.

It looks very narrow.

A good name for it.

I would like to be positive about this building, but it seems pretty bland.
