Couldn't there just be a link to that thread here in the supertalls forum?
Standard SSC practice: there's a thread in the UK & Ireland section (i.e. local) and this thread in the International section. This would be the case for most major projects.

I can see the logic of just having one thread for major projects like this, but I also like the different perspectives on each thread. The International section gives global visibility and promotes interest from other countries' forumers and conversely promotes interest in foreign projects for UK forumers who initially come to 'Supertalls' to look at the Shard thread.

LaSalle and Knight Frank appointed as agents for the Shard

Jones Lang LaSalle and Knight Frank have been appointed as agents for the Shard commercial development, London Bridge Quarter has announced.

The Shard has established itself as a distinguished London building among property investment specialists, with the site providing 595,000 sq ft of office space, numerous restaurants and luxury accommodations.

Neil Prime, head of markets in England at Jones Lang LaSalle, said: "Given the current shortage of high calibre space being delivered we anticipate very strong demand from prospective occupiers - both from within the UK and internationally."

The office space offered by the Shard is much-needed for London's investors, arriving at a time when there is significant under-supply in the market, Mr Prime also noted. Specialists in Wales' out-of-town office market are also suffering from industry shortages, with GVA reporting via the Western Mail that there was a decline in annual rental growth during the second half of 2010.

Is there a thread for the station refurbishment?
If not, when will it be done?

It doesn't start until after the 2012 Olympics.

Judging by PortoNuts' Jan 4th and Mar 21st photos; if they keep up that pace of construction, then I'd say this will easily top out many months before 1WTC. Probably around late summer to early fall.
