Thanks for the diagram Culwulla, can't wait for this one to overtake One Canada Quare. And thanks for reminding that there will be an infinity pool up there.

Will the infinity pool be open to the public or is it part of the hotel?

Oh that would be far too good to be true. It will be reserved to hotel guests.

The Emir of Qatar, one of the major investors in this project through his financial funds, is currently on a state visit to London. Can't he go to London Bridge and take a look at this?

That is an amazing picture PortoNuts.

Love it! I'm trying to figure out where you took it from... St Paul's Lantern maybe??

Doesn't London look nice and 'green' in the background?! (Yeah, I know that's looking south east, but it still looks nice!)

Apols for not crediting you Chest! Lovely pics!

PortoNuts - Big Brother might look down on most of it cousins, but I reckon the Pinnacle will stand up to him...

Amazing picture.

How tall is it now? Must be well over 200 meter already?

I know your shot was from St. Pauls, Chest, but this render isn't far off.
