Once this starts rising, it will be unstoppable.

Are there any architects or insiders on this project on the forum that can tell me how this will rise will the core rise and then the steel follow like on the Shard or will the core stay with the steel like on 1WTC?

Absolutely!
I had lost track of this tower and didn't even notice they had started any works on it. Great news.

From today - Byrne Bros truck and bits of kit which must be more of the jump form


lots of people working away on the core




from what i understand the new HSBC facility for £600m is the development finance for building out the superstructure and also refinances the money poured into the site already in terms of purchase, demolition and prep. the Shard is costing £350m fixed price, the Pinnacle can't cost £600m just for the build, the new financing they are talking about must wrap all costs up together (this is just my interpretation btw).

Once secured, I think we'll see a smooth ride straight into the main superstructure construction from early 2011 with no discernable 'stop' on site (as we see at RS).

It looks tiny from photos posted here but having been up there a couple of weeks ago I was gob smacked at how big it is in real life - it's quite difficult to get any wide angle pictures of the site because of the perspex viewing window.
