No, I don't think so, even though lights are on at night because a security team certainly remains.

What's the dimensions of the footprint of the Shard? I'm trying to get perspective on the size of the building at ground level. It is probably one of the most stunning tall buildings I have ever seen.
Part of me laments the loss of the low rise "Old" London, the other part of me is in awe.
Some of you have been very kind about the design of "The Guy" but even with the upcoming recladding that building is just heinous. The overhang on the top floors is clearly an afterthought.
Thanks for all the pics of the Shard there are some very talented photogs out there.
Especially the pics on the last few pages.
