Great updates. Love him or hate him, you must credit Ken Livingstone for the audacity to construct a new skyline in an old city.

The base of the spire has already been installed inside the top of the building. I heard the top section of the spire is to be installed sometime this month.

When you quote something, just try to avoid copying the pics as well. It does get pretty heavy to display.

Any idea if this will be a Trump-Chicago style 'crank-down' from chopper type of installation? If yes: I WANT PICTURES, PEOPLE!!!

Pictures

Why must we be seiged with people replying to a host of pictures and just saying that we like these pictures, granted they are nice and the people who have taken them should be proud but do we need to see all the pics again. just say the page number or something.
