Do you mean on the left one? That's the concrete section.

It is fair enough to say the building is best located in that area. Visitors will have a great view of the city from the top floors.

What's the problem with the similarities?

Beautiful pic you found there.

England and the USA have an incredibly strong relationship as we both help each other. How cool would it be if they twinned the Shard with One World Trade Centre. I would love that

A snap with my G2 from the top of Leith Hill, south of Dorking in Surrey today. That's about thirty miles from the centre of London.

There's the City cluster with The Shard on the left, and Canary Wharf peeking over the top of the North Downs to the right.



I kind of missed the extra reach my 5D and 70-200 lens would have got me, but I didn't miss hauling the weight up to the top of the highest point in South East England

I'm sorry, but I just don't like this tower. However, progress looks really good and this building will soon become an icon!
