Just a pic I took on my camera phone a few days ago.


Someone said a few pages ago that this was an inelegant building that would do nothing for London's skyline. It's not finished yet but I don't think it's to hard to see that this building has elegance and will do wonders for London's skyline. It's mos def a quality skyscraper.

The smaller top floors make so much of a difference!

Total guesswork as I don't even know where are positioned, but perhaps because they would obscure better views, or because there is less surface area to the building at the top?

I read something about the spire being put in place in April. Unless they want to finish the cladding before dealing with the spire.
