I'm pretty sure it is the correct size. Feel free to prove me wrong though.

Wow it really does look huge in that video. I also love the contrast between the Tower of London which was built nearly 1000 years ago to the shard which is about as up to date as you can get. The shard really has a huge pressence around the tower bridge area, really makes me want to visit it again now. I can see why some ppl call it the twenty first century Eiffel tower because it dominates the skyline from below and you'll be able to see it all over london

Nice video. Funny to hear people talking about the Shard.

Harry forgot to mention that there will be another 60m added on top of the current hight thanks to the spire .

i was literally amazed by the size, beauty and quality of the shard when i see it in person for the first time. although the shard is not as big as Bunji Dubai but it really dominates the whole london skyline from every angle thx for sharing the vid Porto

65m.

It's 245m to the top of the concrete core at the moment and 310m complete. Though of course there's some bits that'll adding to the apparent height, like the crane and rig box. 60m is probably fairer than 70m.

Incorrect. 1WTC is 541.3m to the tip of the spire which is exactly what that diagram shows.

i am not talking about diagram as i am sure it's measurement is absolutely accurate. But what i want to say is that if you compare 1WTC to other skyscrapers it is just a big guy and it makes the rest (including Shard) looks small

It's indeed always cool to see non-skyscraper people noticing a skyscraper.
