Not quite yet. They still have to finish the roof (which is taking a while...) and then actually do the interior and sky garden. I rekon a finished date of late 2013 early 2014. Open for business mid-2014 and then probably open the public sky garden next summer. - Thats what i rekon. But its not fact.

Someone on here probably knows the exact schedule.

Kind of...

The roof will take quite a long time to complete - same goes for the garden. I would imagine they will soon start the interior. But I doubt they will start interior until the bulk of the roof is finished due to safety of groundfloor workers and just site conjestion etc etc.

Like i said earlier in the post - i rekon late 2013/early 2014. Mid 2014 open for business. Summer 2014 for the public.

Any pictures or updates anyone?

Development seems to be slowing down... so maybe they are doing some interior work while doing the roof at the same time?

By the way if anyone is interested, I spoke to one of the guys from PAD Steel and they said that the landscaping and prep for the sky garden is costing £40m!!

Yeah, I could only really bring an iPhone with me as I don't think CW are too keen on people taking pics. So unfortunately that's why the quality isn't too great.
