At the moment its growing about once a month, however now the core setup has been reconfigured so jumps should be more frequent.

I can say 1-2 m in one month based on the recent and one month old photos Let's hope it'll start rising soon

The spire was ultimately reduced by about 50 feet. That is the old massing.

If they are waiting for this next recession to pass before they get started, we are really in for a long wait here.

So is it currently rising at 1 floor every two weeks ?

And is it going to be a race between this and the Cheesegrater ? When these two are complete the City will look awsome! better than Canary Wharf!

I hope it will go quicker then that once it gets into the swing of things seeming as the Shard's rose about 11 floors a mounth.

Having said that it is great to see it rising even a small amount!
