I think he means the white steel currently being added in the central section of the building, which I assume is more around the internals so won't be visible once the building is completed?

It's nothing to do with money. The Pinnacle has its funding... it's stopped due to no one wanting the office space at the moment.

completely, it has more to do with the eurozone crisis and low demand for the office spaces.

leadenhall is being built quite quickly bcos it will be occupied by the world's largest insurance company Aon plc as soon as the construction is done

Exactly, this building has a verified tennent. But Pinnacle doesn't so it's on hold.
