It's not even finished, and it's already a beautiful building! Fantastic.

I think the Shard is one of the best designed skyscrapers/supertalls going up in the world right now!.. beautiful design!

Congratulations London... and cheers from New York!..

That's quite a view from that height. If I recall, some middle floors are public space. So from where those crane cabs are now, that's the view visitors could expect. Awesome!

The public observation deck is at the top of the core, so the view you see in those photos will be the view visitors get.

Yeah, the observation deck is at the top. But at the height of those pics that will be the hotel lobby and restaurant. I don't necessarily think the higher you go the better the view. Either height should be pretty spectacular.

This is the second time he's tried to derail this thread, last time he made it into a LDN v NYC debate lasting 50 posts, now he's trying it with Dubai.
