Is it my obsession or mere partiality to say England has achieved something iconic by constructing this building(rhetorically).

A building taller than 300 metres is most certainly iconic in an European country.

The amount of flooring is quite big now, so the core has to grow quickly for them to carry on the flooring.

I know we usually put "an" before a vowel in the English language, but "an European" does NOT roll of the tongue well. "A European" does.

Back on topic, progress for this tower is nice.
