On 5 December 2016, it was reported that the building had “destroyed” the view of St Paul’s Cathedral from King Henry’s Mound in Richmond Park, which had existed since 1710, when an avenue of trees was planted to frame the vista of the cathedral's dome. The developers responded that “Despite going through the correct planning processes in a public and transparent manner, at no point was the subject of visual impact to St Paul’s ever raised" by the Olympic Delivery Authority or the Greater London Authority and that they were looking into the issues raised by the development.
