Wonderful tower! Great for London!

Just to add that it's much more beautiful than Mercury City Tower, no matter it's lower. It's classy!

It's actually called 'The Place' and will be located right next to the Shard.

Any world on when steel will hit the top of the core? I'm in London mid-July and I'd love to see it rise.

I hope they can finish the cladding of the concrete section this month so, yeah, perhaps in July they will have started placing the steel.

I can't wait to go back to London and take in the new skyline, which will no doubt be littered with cranes for years to come.

@PortoNuts. That building, The Place, would be pretty nice close to the Shard!

If there is a building next to The Shard, then you will see how tall it really is.

Absolutely great rob, been a while since I've seen one from that viewing platform, it's coming on well, the cladding is superb! Love those shots...

I took the day off work today to go taking pictures and finally had the chance to get up there at a reasonable time of day for the light. Luck was with me for the weather after an awfully wet weekend.

Brilliant shots there! I love that view because you can get almost the whole building, including the lower floors which usually don't show up in street pictures.
