Anyhow, here's a bunch of pics taken today.

Glazing progress on the east side of the spire, with a second row of the shorter panels (level 77?).

Look at the bottom left, there's one panel just being slipped into place.





Canopy on St Thomas Street




This chap was drilling holes in a column as far as I could tell. I guess for the next canopy fixing.




Reprise of a similar shot last week, but with better light a little later in the afternoon. And in black and white




Various other aspects of the west side

Good pictures of this tower. I have seen some posts say there will be other towers around it, so anyone has a render with all of them in one render in future?

There are three tower proposed close to the Shard called three Spires although it has not been submitted for planning yet. The only render so far can be seen here -

it's snowing now in London
I'm gonna be waiting for the photos for the tower with the surroundings covered in white
the tower is going to look like one big giant piece of ice sticking out in the middle of London

peace
