Is it soon enough they stop with the construction of the core? If I am right, they are probably on the last stage of the core.

The concrete core won't grow anymore. They just need to finish the concrete flooring section and proceed to the steel and that's it. Then it's the internal fittings until completion.

I believe guys hospital is just over 140 mtrs, so looking at that last pict the cladding looks well short of 200.

Looks great without the cranes surrounding it. I can't wait for the upper floors to start.

Some snaps from this week, I hope they aren't too amateurish.

Crane jib being dismantled ( a few days late, I know). Now that looks like fun!




Tower of London (quite a fitting name)!!!

From 16 June. A rainy day. Interesting how the outside lifts rise at a diagonal angle to match the Shard's slope.
