Final steel beam went into place this evening. Just the cladding to finish now.

I like this tower a lot too, i'm looking forward to seeing the finished thing, i don't think the renderings do a very good job of showing what it will look like.

This one, for instance, makes the building look like a strip, and like it gets begger at the top - i don't know if anyone else gets the same impression..?

Trespass isn't illegal, so it doesn't really matter. Perhaps if more people could actually get their heads round this liberating fact, then more people would admire the city at night from 500ft like Turkey did (nice pictures BTW).

So, is the tower going to have a flat roof, or a sloping one like in the renderings?

It has a flat roof. Perspective makes it looks like it slopes on the renderings.

The cladding has started poking above the lower portion of the building so is appearing on the skyline and looks mighty impressive.

Trespass is not generally a criminal offence, but the owner of land may seek civil remedies against a trespasser. I think if anyone needs to get their head around anything........

Completion is scheduled for May 2008. The smaller 201 Bishopsgate will be finished in February.

Nice building, but not elegant.

Here are some pics I took this morning. This was the first time I'd seen the building up close, at full height. I have to say, it looks enormous from Shoreditch. It has a major impact on the area... a proper skyscraper for sure.

Also, I think the cladding looks superb now and I have no worries about the 'back' at all.




















This is looking south down Bishopsgate from the base of the tower -

I was about to take some pics looking up, when my camera batteries ran out! I managed to get a video just before this though -

Excuse the quality (rather dark and the weather was miserable)...

The X shape pattern make it cooler, nice addition for 'the City'!

Btw, there's no core in it?
