Piling work began on the site in January 2011 and in early March 2012 the slip-formed concrete core reached 162m (level 36).
The basements are almost complete and work to the stairs and lift shafts have started. In April the tower cranes will be fixed to the top of the concrete core and errection of the structural steel frame will start.
Mechanical and Electrical services contractors have been appointed, with works in the basement plant rooms due to start in May.
The project is on schedule for completion in second quarter 2014.

It widened the City's skyline, which is great.

Yep. I visited London last week and it is absolutely hideous. Ruins the view of the city from quite a few perspectives.

I think this building is a prime example of novelty for novelty's sake. 'a top-heavy skyscraper has never been built before, so let's do it'!!. But there's a good reason it hasn't been done before. That disease which has corrupted modern art, the striving for originality at all costs, leading to novelty for novelty's sake, is infecting architecture as well it seems. But that's just my opinion.
