Sorry to sound like a fool, but what is the core for that I see in a couple of the pics?

Moved from the UK 5 years ago, can't wait to come back this year and see London as a very different city.

I don't think its having a normal core it's just steel work- I think!

Why is it taking so long to see a core rising for this?

Have a look at the video, they need to finish the all the basement construction/groundworks and have the ground floor ready so that supplies can be delivered. Since this building is all steel with no concrete core, it will shoot up when it's ready to rise so just be patient for now, you can't build a 225m skyscraper without making sure the groundworks are completed! I'm sure some of you saw how quickly Heron Tower rose, it'll be a similar story with this.

I'd say probably about 2:05, the ground floor slab hasn't been fully constructed/tidied up yet, as you can see from the photos, but I'd say it was closer to completion than starting.

That's the (currently on hold) Pinnacle (288m). I hope you enjoy your trip!

Thanks for that FM. I knew Leadenhall wasn't having a core!

Fingers crossed for Pinnacle re-starting sometime soon. I didn't realise the 2 were so clustered together, they'll look awesome when both finished.

Trip back is at Xmas, should be good and hopefully will see some real progress here by then!

On the notice board at the site it said the steel should be five floors high within a month

I imagine by the time you visit for Christmas L122 will be high in the sky.

You will also have the Completed Shard and a few others towers in the city to look at. As well as many more dotted around London.

Discounting the on-hold again Pinnacle there are 13+ towers over 100m U/C in London.

One hell of a good looking building. Amazing design to say the least.
