I think the core is half way done! Should be on 36th floor now!
The cladding looks just awesome! It's so shiny
This will turn out to be one of my favourite skyscrapers I think

I see core floor No.37 just begninnig to appear in one of Chest's photos. I think the slow down (1 week from 36-37 appearing) is down to the core reconfiguration.
For those that don't know the concrete core gets thinner somewhere around floor 38,39.
It's going to be interesting to see how much thinner it is when the core climbs past the setback.
Glass looks amazing - I like the way it's super flat so you don't get any bendy reflections!

That mini core appears to be on floor 19 or something. I went to the site in June and it was still on floor 6 or something. This must be about the fastest core to ever go up! Ok it's really thin but it's maintained about 3 floors a week!

I've been a bit absent of late... family holiday and then catching up with work when I got back has been keeping me off the Interwebz

Anyhow, some pics from Wednesday - more in my Shard Gallery.

St Thomas Street/Bermondsey Street




Gate 2




SW Corner




An emerging new 'wing' just to the west of the hoist on St Thomas Street




Some glazing details.. NW corner, by the bus station








Joiner Street







That's a test section of marble walling that you can see in the middle of level 2 above



Taking a delivery on level 2

Here are some pictures I created earlier to (hopefully) help you understand what the building looks like at different angles. If you'd like to see it at another angle just ask me and I'll upload another picture.
