They are plant and radiator floors - essential to the ventilation and environmental control of the building.

Here's the complete floor layout:

Yeah but mate, if you built something 300m tall, you might as well make it accessible all the way upthere! Wether it's a public observation floor or a private pool is another issue but using the highest part of it for stocking brooms and buckets... Na....
Don't get me wrong, I like this tower but they could easily improve it, I'm sure.

I'm trying my hardest not to be nasty here but... brooms and buckets? Are you stupid? Or just stupid where architecture is concerned?

You put mops and buckets in the mop cupboard. Not in 20 very important plant floors, that keep the building 'working' by providing electricity etc... etc...

The plant floors of this building are tied into the design brilliantly. it gives the impression of the tower dissapearing into the sky. How about you go and learn something about buildings before you make such ignorant statements?

London desperalety needs more new towers. This is great news, and the design is very nice. This tower isn't what it normally is, boxy.

Desperately? There are many methods to make a city better, and towers are certainly not a requirement. I do like this tower, however. Unlike most, I'm not a fan of clusters (church spires never stood in clusters) so I'm glad this will stand alone. It looks great in the 20 Fenchurch garden video.

There are currently 7 150m+ skyscrapers planned or under construction for Canary Wharf, including a new tallest at 236m, and 11 more towers in the 100m-150m range.

That should be discussed in the Project Summary Thread, not here. Go there for more information.

New construction schedule. Demolition starts in a matter of months (work already underway on site) and construction begins in May 2008

So close now...

How the hell are you supposed to start construction on a building when the tenants of the current building are JUST starting to leave. They have been holding up in there for years, and are only finally getting out now, after being bought out of the building by the consortium. This isn't Dubai, tallbuildings take time to go up. Have some bloody patience.
