Do you think that Tower 365 still has a chance? From what I had heard, its future seemed unsure. As for the proposals in La Defense, the only proposal I really like is the Tour Phare, but for some reason, I still think that the Eiffel Tower will remain the talllest structure in Paris for awhile.

Looks like top quality cladding, the reflection of Guy's is so clear.

And to think a few moons ago we were still looking at a hole in the ground ... The cladding is simply amazing and the floor is racing upwards at such speeds - we'll be able to see a true shard of glass in no time, and can only reminisce at that stump of concrete then!

If Culwulla's diagram is correct there are still 60 centimeters missing.

How much nicer it would be if the Shard was on the river front and not hidden behind those rather ugly low buildings - maybe time for some more demolitions?

This building will be a star in sunny days, shinning from the top to the base.
