This is looking neat (and I heard this will be the new tallest building in all of Europe).

It will also house the first Shangrila Hotel in Europe

it's extremely obvious in this picture that the shard is quite dirty at the moment and a lot of polishing and cleaning works have to be done in order to have the most amazing cladding, shardy will shine soon
