He's rather talking about the smaller building of the complex, which obviously just started construction process.

Shard developer says next-door offices worth 500 mln stg

The developer of the Shard skyscraper in central London said an accompanying 430,000-square-feet prime office block will be worth about 500 million pounds ($814 million) when completed, representing a yield of 4.7 percent.

Sellar Group chairman Irvine Sellar unveiled plans for the building yesterday as part of a 2 billion pounds redevelopment of the area around London Bridge train station, just south of the river Thames and London's City financial district. The 17-storey Renzo Piano-designed building, known as The Place, will cost 136.5 million pounds to build, with a targeted average rent of about 55 pounds a square foot. Sellar said the building would open in 2013.

Central London developers hope a shortage of high-quality office space and a wave of lease expiries over the next three years will push rents higher. Land Securities and Great Portland Estates plan to develop more prime central London offices, citing rising rents, while British Land was also positive on future rental growth.

The 1,016-feet tall Shard, which is being funded by the state of Qatar, will be western Europe's tallest building when completed next year. Other skyline-altering central London office schemes due to complete by 2014 include Land Securities' Walkie Talkie tower at 20 Fenchurch Street, and British Land's Cheesegrater skyscraper at Leadenhall Street.

In June, asset manager Arab Investments appointed global property group Brookfield to complete London's 1 billion pounds, 64-storey Pinnacle skyscraper by 2014.

that's amazing how you can see the superstructure, when the sun hits it right. I'm sure it won't look like that once the retail space is filled up.
