I've been over the river, time for another Shard update, though

More and larger pics in my Shard Gallery, as usual.


Worthy of a note that three levels now have floors along St Thomas street. I think that makes it all the way round.




Progress on the new steel frame levels

From platform 1 of London Bridge Station




and London Bridge Street



and from St Thomas Street, near to gate 2




Round the 'dark' side of the site between the core and the station building, it seems that shuttering is being put into place for casting a floor, now that the first level of the internal columns have received their concrete casing.






Looking back down Joiner Street, I'm fairly certain those are two newly cast reinforced concrete columns in the lower middle of the frame




and there are some more to follow toward St Thomas Street, judging by the shuttering going up




Finally, a couple of fun photos

Based on the height of that plane, I say it might be safe to assume that this building is going to prompt some air control rerouting? Also, anyone know how wide the base is, roughly?

Simply leaving the site I would imagine - never come close right underneath.

No re-routing of flight paths. There are height restrictions due to city airport, which the Shard complies with. The 747 in the photo is Heathrow traffic. Its wrong to asume new buildings have priority, they don't.

Thanks... I reckon that plane is much higher than it appears.... What are the height limits in London anyways?

A good zoom lens can make very deceiving pictures.

The photo is deceiving. The 747 is bound for heathrow because there is no other airport inside the M25 large enough to accomodate a 747. The plane is the correct height, i see them fly over all the time, i work directly under the flight path.

Very nice pictures Do those blue numbers indicate the floors or the heigh?

edit: Actually, it must be floors. I didn't realise how big the gaps were until i compared the core to the crane beside it.

I live in Aragon Tower, so I have a great view of the City and London Bridge. The Shard's steelwork has just started creeping up out of the surrounding buildings now. Can't wait until they have to move on to the next stage of the core...
