surely you don't believe it'll stay like this, right? you even said it, the tower deserves it's own space to compliment it, but this is london after all. there's limited space all around, and unlike the massive plaza's of la defense or (to a lessssser extent) chicago, this tower is best complimented by other structures. the bus depot is getting a face lift, which (excuse my rudeness) was sort of a silly question considering (as you said) the significance of this development.
