If they keep going like this it'll reach full height in the first months of 2012.

This is one helluva ugly and stressful tower - destroys the character of the place through monstrosity of design. Evil Beast In Concrete!

Pinnacle is going slow, but Leadenhall is going up as fast as it can, no delays with that one.

Ze Germans...going after HMS Belfast again.

Apparently the pier collapsed whilst in use...probably full of fat American tourists.

Nice to see some proper fast height action going on in the city, even if it does have to be the ugly duckling of the cluster....

I have a mixed opinion on this tower. From most of the renderings it looks like a complete monstrosity, but I think it'll turn out much better than we expect. Happy to see progress!

That render's way out of date, it's showing the taller version of this building which was over 200m tall.
Good render of the other buildings...just not this one.

A fantastic pace. Floor 15 is now visible, 16 should become visible very soon indeed. Thanks to chest for these...
