Yeah - it will have to be built in its own footprint. All while London Bridge Station stays open (And Guys Hospital too)

Here is a pic, and interesting article that were posted in the UK thread, which explains the process somewhat.

This looks a bit more organised than the demolition of Rangs Building in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Thank god and prayers please for those that lost their lives.

QInvest to Buy Majority of London `Shard,' Property Week Says

By Simon Packard

Dec. 21 (Bloomberg) -- QInvest, a bank owned by investors from the Gulf states, is poised to become the majority owner in the London skyscraper development known as the `Shard,' Property Week reported, citing people familiar with the situation.

QInvest will buy the 33 percent stakes of CLS Holdings Plc and Simon Halabi and part of the stake of Sellar Property, the weekly magazine said. Spokesmen for the three parties declined to comment on the magazine's report.

Earlier this week QInvest Chief Executive Officer Abdul Latif Almeer said during a press conference that the bank was helping in an unnamed 1.4 billion-pound ($2.78 billion) real estate project in London, Property Week said.

The Renzo Piano-designed tower project is expected to cost at least 800 million pounds to build.

Its Russia tower's cute little wife. While you have the darker, larger and taller masculine Russia Tower, this one seems slimmer, sleeker and less pronounced, yet just as stunning and more beautiful in the feminine way. Quite a long distance relationship though.

"The developer behind London Bridge Tower, better known as the Shard, appears to have finally secured the necessary investment to move the project into full-blown construction."

It's not confirmed yet.
