Sorry to sound ignorant, but what are all the little blue cranes in the background? I count 5 visible, all seem to be really short?

They're part of the Lloyd's building, they are permanent features.

I imagine this building is a logistical nightmare seeing the angles that the steel will be going up in... can't wait for it to take shape more.

Landsecs in ‘Walkie Talkie’ letting talks

Land Securities is closing in on signing up the first tenant for their flagship City of London skyscraper, the so-called Walkie Talkie building.
The UK’s largest real estate investment trust by market value is in discussions with Kiln Group, the insurer, about its taking up a 60,000 sq ft pre-let agreement in the 37-storey tower, people close to the deal said. The company has only two years to run on the lease in the building in Leadenhall Street where it occupies about 47,000 sq ft.

News of the negotiations comes just a month after Costar reported that Landsecs had opened negotiations with Markel, another insurer, about the possibility of its taking up space in the 690,000 sq ft Walkie Talkie.
Although nothing has been agreed yet, the approaches from the two companies underlines the fast-growing presence of insurance groups in the City office market – traditionally the heartland of the UK’s banking industry – as they make the most of the supply of new buildings in Europe’s pre-eminent financial district.

British Land, Landsecs main rival, also recently announced it had struck a deal with Aon, the US insurance group, to take up 191,000 sq ft of space in its forthcoming Leadenhall Building development, nicknamed the “Cheesegrater”.
The two towers form part of a cluster of four skyscrapers under construction in the City. The buildings are expected to capture some of the demand arising from lease expires and breaks, which are expected to hit 3m sq ft a year in the City until 2017.
