Those pictures look INSANE. The roof is really coming along - i especially liked the Wind Alert sign - pretty cool. 20 Fenchurch is just amazing.

I just love how the fins look, rising up and curving from the base.

That cladding is just dreamy... haha

Those fins are brilliant, the way the connect with the roof so elegantly is a masterpiece. Beautiful.

Im going to the monument Saturday - will get a close up view i hope!

It is expensive... and I haven't been myself - BUT it is meant to be worth it, and the experience itself is amazing.

If it was £15 it would be a lot better!

This weekend I'm going to the Monument! I'v never been to that! That will be a good view of The Shard and all the other skyscrapers in the City.

I love the monument, I like to view skyscrapers in the middle of all of it.

All we need is a tower inbetween 20 Fenchurch and the others and we got ourself a diamond skyline!

I'm not too sure what that building is with the curved roof inbetween the main cluster and 20 Fenchurch (not the Willis Building), but that could be replaced with something very nice!

IKR! It would look amazing with a sleek tower there - similar size to Leadenhall Tower or maybe the Gherkin.

Has anyone got any news on the Pinnacle?
