Thanks. The basement slab area looks to have doubled in the last 10 days. They seam to be making decent progress with the excavating as well. I was a bit worried that platform on the first photo was going to be extended right across the whole side, as it would have obscured the view from the little window.

I wonder what nasty shade of green this tower will end up.

Obviously it wont be transparent and silver like in the render - they never are.

I predict it'll be a new shade of either green or blue that will clash horribly with all the other clashing green and blue glass nearby.

For now it looks way to clumsy in London's skyline. Maybe in time it'll blend in better,
but even then it would still look like dr Neo Cortex. He's ugly.

I'm assuming you had the Shard in mind when typing this comment and I agree

It doesn't matter anyway, as a public uproar would soon sort out any ugliness should it not be in harmony with its surroundings. Replacing a few thousand windows shouldn't be too difficult but it would be a waste of resources should it come to that.

They just have to remove the earth that's left and then it's going upwards.
