They'd be available in the plannin Application documents submitted to the relevant borough (in this case Southwark) which legally have to be publically accessible.

PM London Lad, he's a bit of a pro when it comes to using the planning portals, if hes feeling generous he might be able to direct you to the right document?

you can find a couple of the apartment levels at the official site -> http://www.shardlondonbridge.com/ and I don't like very much how the space is organized, the core is huge at that level...

Amazing, you see hundreds of renders and beautiful pictures, but a little diagram like this makes it hit home what we're really getting!

T'would be nice to have a render of it against the Eiffel Tower as I beleive its taller than the Eiffel if you don't include the TV Mast thats at the top of the Eiffel.

Lol- my ears where burning.

Theres no really decent docs online as the project is so old it was before Southwark went live with online planning docs. As someone else mentioned the LBT website have a few images and pdf's of floorplans but nothing substantial.

awesome what an apartment. Probably costing more than 10 million. and not suitable for family's because there's no room for kids. Excellent bachelor pad for the billionaire form the city.

I'm positive the view will be much more from above than shown; I mean, it'll be at the 61st Floor and it looks like from the 20th.

Yes. The tops of Swiss Re and Tower 42 should be lower than the horizon - this is sloppy.

On the other hand, to get a correct backdrop photo they'd have needed a helicopter. I suspect this was taken from Guy's.

I love this tower. It's definately my favorite skyscraper going up (after Shanghai tower).

Agreed.

The steel work is going slow in comparison to the core. Catch up!
