Very well said. I think the outside elevator/lift part of the tower is a fantastic idea. Leadenhall will be a marvel to look at.

I am just hoping for some decent night-time lighting so that it still looks just as good in the evening.

FANTASTIC pictures Lumberjack. Much appreciated.

No, but there is a covered plaza at the base.

That tower in Mexico City has Rogers all over it.

You can definitely see the similarities between Leadenhall and that.

AON

Would just like to take this opportunity to congratulate AON on their great choice of corporate HQ. Having just paid my PI insurance for another year, to AON, am I allowed to believe that in a very small way I am responsible, for this building being built!!!!!!

Chris.

AON won't take the whole building, right? How many floors then?

I'm not too sure. Someone on here would know for certain but I think it's about 40% of the whole building... so quite a lot.

Mid-2014. At then rate constuction is going, it looks everything is going to plan.

Most likely June/July.

Any earlier would be VERY impressive.
