Though some would disagree, (I, for one, am hard pushed to think of a better designed building) I think there's no hyperbole there, I'd say it's certainly a contender.

This is really coming along well. Looks fantastic at night.

Will any night-time special effect lighting be added?

The chevron bracing up the side of the building will be lit up.

Both the City and CW are beautiful. London, like New York, has 2 skylines.
Jesus. Please stop you're making British people cringe.

The Leadenhall's cladding looks superb.

The only thing that is bad is that it does block the view of the Gherkin from some angles. But I'm sure this beaut will be just as iconic.

Sorry I said it in the heat of the moment after coming off the 'best european skyline' thread where the london wa*k fest gets incredibly tiresome and turns people against us!

London looks stunning at night. The Shard at nightime is such a success.

Beautiful pictures.

I was at the Bar 'Veritgo 42' in Tower 42 and you can get some pretty decent sights from there! I took pictures, but only on my smartphone - nothing special I'm afraid. I did however get to see a close up of The Leadenhall building. Looks BRILLIANT! Althought the very top floors are quite small.

I could imagine the City looking very grand from The Shard.
