It's nearly tall enough to be a midrise now.

A site tour is available next weekend as part of Open House.

I love the fact that they have six cranes working on this building. It's like Edward Cranehands is building it.

Going up pretty quickly. Would be good to see some shots other than the webcam shots to get a different perspective on the build.

Starting to break the skyline.

Get out of here! I'm down those ends all the time. I'd say it's an 8-10 minute walk at least.

The tower has now exceeded the height of the neighbouring Broadgate Centre and is visible from Canary Wharf -

You can see the Broadgate Tower starting to appear in this webcam view of 51 Lime Street. Look to the bottom-right of SwissRe:-
