ive recalculated top section.
the top 30 floors of west tower are hotel and have 3m floors. you will see in latest photos are the floor have reduced in height to 3m compared to the 4m office floors.
we are currently about half way up the hotel section.

Truely a spectacular building! The cladding is just surreal, one of the most perfect curtain wall glazing systems I've ever seen, well done Wilkinson Eyre. In some ways it gives a beautiful sheen similar to Fosters, "Willis Faber & Dumas Headquarters" perhaps they took it as a precedent for their cladding system?

hey zorg, that photo couldn't be any better. Probably the best photo I've seen of west tower ever. The cladding looks unbelivable.
