Yeah, but the City itself looks random, disorganized and chaotic.

It's going to look very dark on the skyline. I'm bored of black glass on the City skyline. We need more delicate light classy glass like Canary Wharf has.

Some pics from today's 51 Lime Street visit. Many thanks to Peter Savoy from Mace for giving the SSC visitors a tour of the site.

The views were simply stunning...

It was incredibly windy though!

I must have taken over 100 pics, including a couple of videos which I'll post up later.

What's that bloke doing in the crane cab? Pissing in a carrier bag?

Shame I couldn't be there, finished my last night shift this morning so was asleep all day. Looks like some pretty amazing views there!

I expect a full 'who's who' photo

Nice tour!!

btw : The facade looks nice, only that there are too many "darky-black" glass in the areas already...

We went up here one night in March. The wind was touching 60mph according to the meters in the cranes.

Here's some pictures, they are a bit blurred, but we couldn't do any better given the situation.








There's a lot more pictures and a report here...
