Looks to be 495m or so. Cannot wait for the first shot from the core that is above SWFC!

There's no need for that and i don't post on the shard forum. My criticisum of this building is quite just and you seem very offended by it. You should try to look at a building and see where improvments can be made. To me, this building is over engineered and the Architect has decided, wow lets have a double curtian wall and create huge atria, no ones ever done that! I know how they think, i am one. The engineer has then over compensated and made the structure twice as strong as it needs to be. All to the cost of the enviroment but that's ok because China's a developing nation so they can. I forgot to say the building looks great!

That the building is twice as strong has value and increases the building's resilience and lifespan.

Visitors, tenants, lessors and lessees feel more confident and secure knowing the building is very strong and over built.

I guess they do not teach that over engineering for longevity is good in Architectural and Engineering curricula, anymore.

That you dismiss this added value as meaningless and favour the environment over all other concerns, is troubling.
