If the Executives will be seated , as usual, at the top floors, they will not have much floor space....instead of the view of course, or will they?

Martijn, the office floors are actually in the lower half of the building, then the Shangri-La hotel is above them, then apartments and then a public observation level right at the top.

Have no idea but it certainly has one (like every office building).

The Place aka 'Baby Shard' is progressing pretty quickly.
