Nice to see a tenant understanding the modernity of the shard and working with it. Unfortunately this cannot be said for the shangri la's iffy interior job.

Wow... that Nine Elms news is impressive. That render is fantastic. I cannot wait to see these towers rise. Another impressive cluster for London.

I'm not so sure I like that bridge to be honest. But maybe I'll like it once it's up.

It's shocking how many approvals have been made this week for Nine Elms.... this is a serious contender for one of Europe's best skylines once all of the towers are complete. The designs are brilliant too!

Great news.

As always, thanks SE9.

There's three sites to the project, and all three will have construction running concurrently.

I like this Garden Bridge, crazy stuff!

They need public money for this project, or donations?
