Well, London doesn't exactly NEED the building. However, what it will do for the cities' image in time for the Olympics is fantastic. I doubt many people not too long ago that London would be getting one of the finest skyscrapers in the world, I mean the Shard will be even better than Swiss Re and look at how well that has been recieved.

It's scheduled to be externally complete by May 2012 - a couple of months before the London Olympics.

Internal completion will be September of that year.

I hope that the Shard would be a vanguard for even higher scrapers in London in the future. Thats why I wrote that London need this building.

After the 9/11 attacks,they revised the internal plan to include more fire escapes and ways or generally getting out the building in the event of an attack.

Demolition of the existing building is underway. The structure is due to be completed by May 2012 and internally completed a few months later.

it will be very tight for them to finish it externally for that time, and I don't think it will happen. but we'll see.
