How is a 202m building likely to "overtake" a 244m building? I've removed that rather ridiculous claim. Clarification - an enormous flagpole on the top does not contribute to the height of the building.
I am placing an Advert template on the article because there are numerous sections which have been written like an advertisement, or in an overly positive manner. Here are the phrases which caught my eye:
Construction: "seemingly ahead of schedule", "rising at a rapid pace", "construction appeared to have accelerated", "'setback'" (with 'quotation marks')
Sustainability: "Sustainability is high on the design agenda"
Heron Plaza: "will form the centrepiece", "incorporating new public spaces and a network of squares and gardens"
The Heron: "Rather than offices, the slender 36-storey tower, called 'The Heron', will be a development of 284 luxury apartments right at the centre of the City of London", "The Heron's moody-looking anodised aluminium and steel facade should provide an interesting aesthetic contrast to the Barbican's concrete towers on the other side of Silk Street"
- No, I don't, but couldn't you have just edited it down? Pretty clear adverter-text! Rgds, --Trident13 (talk) 18:22, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
The article is outdated - says that "Heron Tower is due to open in the first quarter 2011". Q1 2011 is over in days, and from my viewpoint in a nearby building, it's not that close to being done. 27 April 2011. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 14:51, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
Tallest in The City?
The box at the bottom ofv the articlec staes that it was replaced by the Shard as the tallest buliding in The City of London but the Shard is not in The City itself but in Southwark so I have changed the box accordingly Penrithguy (talk) 19:08, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
