It's only partly demolished.

The eastern side of the core box is gone, but the western side of it is still there (as of 0900 this morning, anyhow).

I'm pretty confident that TC7 will be the last on site.

So beautiful London is becoming one of my favourite cities in architecture, I love the Richar Rogers, Norman Foster, Renzo Piano and all of their kind who belong to the "high-tech" architecture, steel frames + glass, simple and beautiful.

The Shard

Progress Update

Duration: to Spring 2012

Main Core and Spire

Spire steelwork from level 72 is planned to start in late September of this year.The Spire is constructed in pre-assembled modular units. Dry runs are currently being carried out at Severs Factory in North Yorkshire to confirm and being demonstrated to the Client and Network Rail.

Post tensioned concrete works

Floors are poured up to Level 65 and continue typically on a weekly cycle up to level 69

External cladding and internal finishes

The external glass cladding is progressing well to all elevations and has reached Level 47 on the main tower. The target is for the building to be fully weather tight by end of this year.

Steelwork

Steelwork to the external Plant Rooms on the Backpack Roof continues.

Cranes

TC1 located on the top of the main core is now dismantled.

TC7 is now installed, cantilevered out at level 56 and beyond to install the spire and remaining higher PT floors. The crane cab is currently at a height of 270m, It will climb further to its final height of 282m.

There is a further crane TC8 sitting on top of the concrete core to the Backpack, which will remain to October 2011 following completion of the backpack plant rooms.
