An office nearby. I can't give the exact location as there are people who've tried to stalk me on this website.

About 30 floors now. I can see it from my office. The pace seems pretty slow compared to Dubai but at least it has not been put on hold.

^ Such a great shot, for those not in the know on London projects, the pic is taken from the jib of the crane of the pictured in the foreground Strata tower (U/C 150m) in South London. The Heron Tower is the steel framed structure visible left of the Gherkin under construction in the right turbine hole.

Wow! I've been excited about this building ever since it was first unveiled about 10yrs ago and is probably my favourite proposal in the Square Mile. Construction is a lot more advanced than i'd expected too.
