A little panorama from Southwark Bridge today, with The Shard making its presence known

I got a bit wet while taking this as the heavens opened a few seconds later.

From that angle it looks like the dominant structure and we're not even halfway up yet!

When the mirror like cladding is finished this baby is going to disappear, it’s the birds I feel sorry for .

The perspective is misleading. Almost, but not quite yet.

If 35 is visible they must be pouring on 37 by now.
Anyone seen drawings/plans - I was wondering what the last full size core is before the core sets back? Also from a drawing I saw before it looked like the core set back on 2 sides only?

I found I had a saved R Braddish drawing! If the setbacks floors are accurate then it appears floor 37 is the last full size core floor. After that one side sets back. On completion of floor 37 it is 138m tall. Guys is (according to the drawing) 142.6m. So Guys' is probably only a couple of metres above the top of that black tarpaulin thing which is just above floor 37.
PS. Mr Braddish I counted the floors in your drawing going up from 33 to 66 and unless I miscounted there's not enough floors drawn inbetween as I made 66 equal to the 64th. That's why I can't be sure 37 is the last full-sized core one.

a few from me today. bottom of 36 visible, quite a few engineers swarming on the south easterly crane suggesting that is being jacked / tied in. very windy, so not a lot being hoisted.

The first setback in the core must be taking place soon.

Can't get tired of looking to that crystal clear glass.
