^ (What's the name of that building with the 3 holes on top there? Looks like it's using wind energy.)

Nice shots everything, thanks for keeping us updated!

It's the Strata tower, featuring 3 built-in wind turbines in the holes you mentioned.

That picture makes it look as if Strata, Shard and City were close together, when in fact they're far apart.

Every time I see shots/renders of The Shard I get one massive gigantic sex wee shoot out of me, I really can't wait for this to be finished - It's just so beautiful.
