I didn't like 51 Lime Street at first but have grown to like it. I'll be interested to see what this looks like when it's complete.

The official website now has a webcam.

Construction should be starting in a matter of weeks.

Wow, I like the design, it's very good. Though I'm not too happy about the Leadenhall, but maybe that'll change when I see it completed (I sure hope so)

A quick update.

Most of the site has now been cleared. The construction cranes should be installed this weekend, then work on the piling and foundations will commence.
