Not sure about CAD drawings or structural analyses, but you can find official renderings and info on here:

Groundwork should start later this year btw, and it will become the tallest skyscraper in the City when complete. It will also become the first building in the Square Mile to contain more than 1,000,000 square foot of floorspace. Architect is Sir Nicholas Grimshaw. This is the view from the South Bank :

This is the view from Waterloo Bridge, which includes many other proposed towers for the City. The huge blue shape in the middle of the cluster represents a possible 980ft tower that was announced last week. Minerva is a bit obscured in this view, but you can see it behind the Gherkin.

London Bridge Tower (the Shard of Glass) would appear just off the right edge of the photo.

Please don't include such large pictures as inline images.

If it's more than 400 pixels across, please provide a link instead.

Thanks.

The way things are going, SE1 might look like that soon. It looks great from a mile or two away, but not so great when you live in the middle of it.
