The Heron Tower
We seem to be in a bit of a tall building-fest at the moment. It has its roots in Ken's advocacy of skyscrapers for London, opening the floodgates to demand. The Heron Tower (left) is the tallest building in the city, narrowly shading the title from Tower 42 (formerly the Nat West Tower on the right). In the overall UK pecking order, it stands behind The Shard and One Canada Square.
