Good evening

I'm about to start work on my Timberkits London cityscape model, and I've identified all the buildings except one on this part. Annoyingly they don't tell you what all the buildings are in the instructions.

Please could you help me identify the building on the far right?

L-R The Gherkin, The Shard, St Paul's Cathedral, ?

I think it could be 22 Bishopsgate but not sure.

Thank you! smile

I think its meant to be one of the skyscrapers in canary wharf? No idea of the name though- sorry.

I’d say it’s the Gherkin, the Shard, St Paul’s and the NatWest tower.

ZsaZsaMc Wed 25-Mar-20 19:39:20

I take that back - it’s definitely not!

It’s the NatWest building

Also known as Tower 42. Lovely view from the top

Thanks for your responses!
I love all the nicknames of the buildings!
I've looked them all up and I agree it's likely the NatWest Tower. The shape in the model is very generic though.

This is the best photo of Tower 42 (NatWest Tower) that I can find with a similar perspective with the OP photo.

NorthernSpirit Wed 25-Mar-20 19:42:38

I think it’s 22 Bishopsgate

Tower 42 aka NatWest building

UserThenLotsOfNumbers Wed 25-Mar-20 19:42:57

Amazing - thank you! smile

Tower 42 definitely, it's one of the older ones.

BellaVida Wed 25-Mar-20 19:43:38

Leadenhall Building maybe?

Lordfrontpaw Wed 25-Mar-20 19:44:52

NatWest. My old office used to look into it.

Lordfrontpaw Wed 25-Mar-20 19:45:20

Can you post a pic when it’s done?

One Canada Square, Canary Wharf London

I reckon the heron tower

Pinkpeone1 Wed 25-Mar-20 20:08:30

Its Heron Tower

WhentheRabbitsWentWild Wed 25-Mar-20 20:12:43

Yea I think its the Nat West building as well or Tower 42 as PPs have said

Pinkpeone1 Thu 26-Mar-20 03:13:05

The Natwest building has the elevated bit in the middle whereas Heron tower has the elevated bit to one side.

I now have it on good authority that it's the NatWest Tower. It depends what side you are looking at it from maybe as the top is like the Natwest logo if you look at it from above. Heron tower is quite jiggy-jaggy on the top. Bishopsgate (100 and 22) are both flat roofed.

Now I've got the architects and engineers and techy people all discussing the design. It's going to be a long afternoon... (but fun)

It's Tower 42 isn't it? Previously the Nat West tower.
