The Shard has been tallest in the EU for a while if you don't count the fact that the Commerzbank Tower in Frankfurt is 300.1 meters tall with antenna.

A few photos taken along Tooley Street on my way into work this morning.

You can plainly see what a huge difference cleaning the glass is making.

I think the red lines take some of the beauty away.

Man it's going fast now! I wonder if they'll top out before the end of the year. Should be close.

As far as I've understood it, parts of the pinnacle are pre-assembled and merely need to be lifted into place and welded on. So it ought to go rather smoothly, hopefully. A topped-out building in 2011 is not unlikely, january 2012 at the latest.

That top bit looks so spooky - like Salisbury cathedral spire on the inside.

If they don't make it by the end of the year they can always top it out on January 1st.
