building speed is just phenomenal. I go off the forums for a 2 weeks with a holiday, come back and it's a completely different site.

Great stuff, thanks for all the photos guys.

I guess that yellow steel is the visible part of the structure we can spot to the right here, eh?

Sorry if that kind of question araised here before, but this building isn't going to have a traditional core and be supported by the outside steel construction only, right ?
Looks really awesome anyway - can't wait to see it finished. London is really getting some brilliant skyscrapers now.

No, it won't have a core.
