I went to see the Shard yesterday: I've seen it every time I've been in London the past 2 years or so, about 6 times. It's starting to look truly iconic, you can see it from Westminster Bridge now, and there's a very nice view of the entire London skyline from Heathrow Terminal 5.

Great building, but it's not a real supertall with that empty spire.

Newcastle, I disagree. Cleaning rigs have been out within the past few weeks, always leaving obviously clean but still translucent glass in their wake. The panels in that photo are completely transparent.

A few of us have speculated the interior surfaces of the skin are protected by an adhesive film. If that's correct, the finished building will shed its slightly murky look as the film is stripped. There must be someone on the project who can confirm interior film - or not.
