Thanks for posting anyway (I also saw an old one you posted of the St George Tower and thought they had put the jib back on the crane already!)

It's about to start passing all the buildings around it! Very solid candidate for top skyscraper of 2013!

While I certainly hope the Pinnacle ends up being built (without being value engineered or having a design change) I will admit that I am ecstatic to see this building have its time to shine as the biggest in this cluster. It's always been the London building I wanted to see get built the most.

Uhm... Not really. Except for the one that connects islands to the mainland, bridges in Venice are single-span.

Jex, that's Sea Containers House - it's not being demolished, just refurbished.

It will look taller then Heron from some of the more common angles, though - from the South Bank and Waterloo Bridge for example, because it's closer (for example, Heron's main structure is ~20m taller than Tower 42, but in the above photos they look the same height).
