Almost there. I wish it could be completed for when I visit London in early July, but I doubt it.

Just...wow. Richard Rogers at his finest. The cladding looks fantastic and the height is perfect for London City. Happy that Bishopsgate is delayed so this gets its well-deserved spotlight for the next coming years.

Oh yeah? What does the following article state..?

Quote:
The Shard replaced Southwark Towers, a 24-storey office block built on the site in Southwark in 1975. Renzo Piano, the Shard's architect, worked with the architectural firm Broadway Malyan during the planning stage. The glass-clad pyramidal tower has 72 habitable floors, with a viewing gallery and open-air observation deck – the UK's highest – on the 72nd floor, at a height of 244.3 metres (802 ft)

It's all steel - I don't think this building has any concrete.
