Well the project in its entirety has kind of a distant Sears look with the 'steps' structure at the top. Very distant though.
And the silly lonely spire will bug me for sure...

Woah! Didn't realise it was so high already, from that perspective you can see just how huge it is, even though it's nowhere near its peak!
Fantastic stuff!

Is amazing how fast they are going, specialy for having that small of a site. Deliveries of steel beams and materials must be on point to keep up. The whole are is going to get a boom in traffic, did London plan any additional subway stops or infractucture for the area?
