Wow, they're really cracking on there. The atrium is very visible.

Edit: These threads will be much easier to track when the new construction forum goes in.

Well, if the developers are bothered by it, all they have to do is ask Martin G for his designs for the revamped Snow Hill Station.

I've only just noticed that there is 2 cranes on the site, when did the second one go up? (must have been some time ago I guess).

Ages ago fella.

I'm struck by the huge scale of this development. The sheer size and ambition. This is the smallest part of the entire project and it's huge.

Onwards and upwards!

Construction costs are an estimated £250m

The MSCP seems to be being resurfaced
