Fantastic photos! Heron really does dominate its surroundings, especially since the cladding is so high up, as well as the structure now being 202m high!

Anyone know when the spire will go up, and when the cladding will finish?

(Also, what are spires for, other than adding metres to the height of a tower?)

It looks great.

This shot shows the beginning of the "box" atop the stairwell that takes Heron's height without spire to 202m:

Amazing tower. It looks a lot taller close up for some reason. The quality of the cladding looks superb too.
