LOL. Seriously though, all that glass, didn't they think of that? I don't want to be vaporised next time I'm out for a walk in the City, I hope Leadenhall is safer.

what's meaning of "vaporized"? why can't find it in online dictrionay? you don't like it ?

Now this and fenchurch are topped out we have the new constructions in the city to cluster to keep us entertained, the scalpel, boomerang, 100 bishopsgate, heron plaza, principal place, one crown plaza will revolutionise the city skyline, add canary wharf and all the other new clusters and London is on an entire city wide skyscraper revolution, good times for europe

Sony were announcing a new camera earlier today at City Hall. This is one of the shots taken from there using the new hardware. I don't think the weather was helping...

London's new towers are majestic. I think The Leadenhall Building is going to be the centre of the City for a while until The Pinnacle is sorted out properly. Beautiful tower though... such an elegant design. It's so London.

Sorry, its a combination of 'vapourised' and 'vaporized'. I.E., the effect of standing underneath the focal point of the Walkie Talkie at Fenchurch Street on a sunny day.

The development has succeeded in attracting tenants, especially in contrast to the nearby part-built Pinnacle and completed Heron Tower. In May 2011, it was announced that the lower 10 floors of the Leadenhall Building have been pre-let to the world's largest insurance broker Aon, which moved its global headquarters to London from Chicago. Insurance group Amlin has also agreed terms on a 20-year lease of the 18th to 24th floors as well as the top floor the 45th from March 2015, for a total of 111,000 sq ft of office space.

Absolutely beautiful. Above are some of the best pictures yet.

I love the Nightime Lighting effect of the Heron Tower. Does anybody know if the Leadenhall will have some sort of nightime lighting/show? Maybe a straight vertical light like on St.Georges Wharf would fit the bill...
