No wonder they were knocked over so easily, it looks like pure glass in that picture.

When the floor level of the Shard reaches the height of the core, then it will be T/O or not yet?

As far as I know, it will still rise above the core.

My overall impression from visiting it yesterday was that it was not overbearing at all and looked bright and vibrant even though it was an overcast day.

I don't get all these nimby's complaining about the tall buildings going up in London. I think the people concerned about preserving London's historical beauty should be more concerned with giving the upper part of St. Pauls Cathedral a good hosing down to make it nice and shiny. Besides, London is a city of contrasts, both in it's multiculturalism and it's architecture. Buildings such as the Shard and (hopefully) the 3 spires project will enhance this. London's nickname should be city of contrasts.

I think it will have 72 'usable' floors but 87 overall floors.
