People that constantly criticise this should be around in 50 years.

I love the shiny cristal curtain of the building, it looks simple and yet the shape is totally unsymmetrical. I'm not an arquitect nor have much knowledge about it but this definetly looks to my eyes like the modern modernism. Does that even make sense? lol.

Is the core finished yet? My understanding was that the core itself was done, and the radiator floors will be added on later once the cladding has caught up a bit, is this correct? Do we have any info on when the building will be topped out to the full 310m?

The concrete core is done. Everything above that is steel only.

Greenwich Station is an interchange between the DLR and National Rail, so it depends from where you're coming.

Btw, good pictures.

nice light in those shots down St Thomas Street; it makes the glass look very silvery.
