Great pictures - I'm looking forward to seeing this one take shape.
Question - the squat building between the crane and Tower 42: if I have got my bearings, then this is the one that gets demolished to make way for the Leadenhall Tower?

The crane on top of the core is being finished. It must be a nice view from the cabin!

Looking good. Still, 6 or 7 floors to go, cannae remember, will go and check it out maybe tomorrow

Can't wait until Broadgate (160m) starts rising too. Oooh and i guess Heron (242m to spire) is next in the city.

For those that don't know, Broadgate is to the right of Swiss Re, you can just about see the red crane sticking out from behind Swiss Re, I think its turned the other way so isn't as visible.

Good stuff wjfox, you never fail to deliver! I can't actually see the red crane sticking out from behind Swiss Re, glad to hear that Broadgate is ready to go up though!

I really wish they'd hurry up and approve Bishopsgate tower quickly, it's my favourite proposed skyscarepr in the world at the moment...yes, and that includes the magnificent LBT! When that beast starts constrcution I may just take a trip down to London to see it myself!

Raised another level, and steelwork is rising too.



Once its topped out, from this angle it will appear as tall as Swiss Re
