A few photos taken early this morning.

Because of the angle of the light, in the first one you can see how terribly mucky the glass is at the moment.

Thanks to everyone who has been adding pictures of this beauty, particularly Chest and Cybertect. Amazing to see how it has grown over the last few years

When you see so many monstrosities going up (hello Mecca clock tower et all) it is refreshing to see a well-designed building that will become a landmark for all the right reasons

Fantastic photos, the spire's looking great so far! I took a few from Waterloo Bridge a while back, but even they're out of date now, so no point in posting them here.
Oh and a small thing - the thread title should read 309m, not 306.

I'm going to London on the 3rd of April, do you think the 4th part of the spire will be completed by then?

Thanks

This could be love because
I've had the time of my life
No I never felt like this before
Yes I swear it's the truth
And I owe it all to you
