Some pics from my way to work this morning again.

As there were a few tourists about taking photos, I thought I'd risk some snaps of the station concourse roof, which is coming along





And, with access under the north side canopy, we have some new angles available, helped by an autumn morning's sunlight. While they're structurally different designs, the station roof and the canopies share a common design language. I love 'em













For sake of completeness, here's the view of the east side of the crown from Potters Fields

Exactly mate, i have seen lots of them in many SSC threads i reckon they are just jealous of the reputation and potential that London has achieved so far.

They should realize the fact that London is the only city in EU that is building a supertall. Haters gonna hate innit!

"Beautiful but not tall. The highest occupied floor only seems to be around 230m."


I wouldn't like to fall out of the window.

You won't be able to, the only danger of falling out the Shard is on the plant floors delivering the window cleaner units out the special floor sliding panels. All the rest are erected into the building.

Yes, that's an extraordinary quality.

Look at the glass/panels, how crystal clear which is unlike boring stone or brick cladding towers like you see in many European & in some poor Asian cities.
