Great speed, guys! I visited this thread just recently and there were like 80 metres above the ground, now the building is already a scraper.
But need to say, the colour of cladding is arguably good, because its "wide-spread" so no new.

Backpack and the wall that's being constructed at the east end of the site

Hi all. Although I've been coming to this site for ages this is my first post. Just wanted to say how excited I am with all the current building projects in this great city. I'm fortunate to live centrally, and (weather permitting) I regularly walk around the City and South Bank when not working or sleeping in with a hangover. The Shard is my fav building, is the hotel supposed to be open in time for the Olympics? I'm doubtful.

The concrete floors already make a nice section, keep them coming.

I wonder if it will get topped out by October, when I'm planning to pay my first visit to London

It will be externally finished by then but will have gone into the most boring part for anyone who follows skyscraper construction.
