Rhodes' rooftop view of the sunset. Is Bermondsey famous for it's sunset views? But what about the dazzling reflection during the day?On this shadows topic, will there be any shadow cast immediately to the south of such towers? I had always thought that, in the UK, the sun rises in the east, heads along southwards and westwards, and then sets in the west. So I could see how parts of Wapping/St Katherines Dock might be rather en-shadowed, but presumably Zandra Rhodes's FTM will be OK....?

The tallest of the three would reportedly offer views of the English Channel; together they would interfere with the Mayor's own views. In a downturn, there is little economic rationale for projects like this; aesthetically, there is even less. Mr Johnson should say no.
