Actually, the public restaurant has now been moved to the top four floors

That's awesome. I wish some of our new buildings in Chicago would have a restaurant or observation on the top. You guys sure are lucky to have this amazing tower.

That's the Heron Tower site. Demolition is expected this summer, maybe sooner.

No I was actually referring to the first picture with the rectangular grey concrete slab which Will kindly answered for me indicating the Heron tower, but thanks for the information Cause I don't visit the London forums often I had no idea that the Old Stock was reclad, thanks for the info buddy, appreciate it and wow, doesn't it already look a helluva lot better than before.

God bless those Arab investors! How long will demolition take? Can we expect a core rising in a year or so?
