What are they going to do with those empty floors at the top?
Also, are they leaving it without cladding or what?

I've liked this building from the start, but as it's drawing closer to completion i've found myself liking it more and more. I love it!
I'm going to try and get down there around the opening so that I can see it finished

DarkShadows, in a trolling mood are we? This is the 7th thread I've seen you troll on today. It's okay, though. Just not in this thread!

The only thing that could make this tower better would be if they re clad the hospital next to it,hwne is that meant to start? Before the Olympics?

Three snaps from my way into work this morning:

You can see the difference that Team Extreme have been making, cleaning the glazing at the top




Two guys in a cage, apparently inspecting the base of the tower crane tie




Spire from the southern end of Tower Bridge
