A little question the title of this thread says the shard is 310m but I saw on a website (I don't remember which one) it was 312m. I know it's only 2 meters but, does anyone can confirm ?

A selection of pics from today. More to be found in my Shard Gallery


Queen Elizabeth Street




Top of the East side




Cleaning unit being tested






Backpack plant levels with their 50% glazing






Road signs by Gate 3, St Thomas Street




Gate 3 - showing the brick wall that's being built




Gate 2 - more brickwork visible




Glass has gone into the wall on Levels 1 & 2 by Gate 1




The stair unit from the spire turned on its end. Look closely - some assembly has been going on here before it's hauled up to the top. I suspect this may be setting a pattern we'll see repeated as the spire is built.




Station side canopy looks fairly complete now




Just as I was finishing up, the heavens opened

Four snaps from my way into work this morning.

The new station concourse is really opening up now as they've removed most of the old columns and structure.

@cybertect thanks for the close-up shots


another night shot taken 2 months ago by robotactic ( i'd say the progress is going quite fast, just can't wait to see the spire on top of that core )
