Shard to be unveiled

One thing which is striking here is that Sellar isn't mentioned much in the news story about the Shard, however it's apparently opening on July 5th.

Grabbed a few pics on my way home this evening.



China Eastern Airlines Airbus A330 B-6545 providing a little extra interest to this scene




Top BMU out doing BMU things, apparently





Sadly, didn't catch a crane section being lowered, but here's a foreshortened, slightly truncated tower crane.






and one of the sections that had been placed on the ground by Gate 1

New York is already pretty much skyscraper city. For them to build futuristic skyscrapers, they have to knock down the current giant concrete boxes.. easier said than done
