I can't believe this is so close to completion! I watched this beauty rise since it was slightly past Guy's Tower, and it turned out so stunning. Congratulations on your first supertall, London.

Yup, this was a really great documentary. Really any construction and shard fans (pretty much everyone here I suppose) should really give it a watch.

I was on a week trip to London. For several days I managed to take pictures of this building from almost all sides.

The building in general I like but do not like the finish of the summit.

From tower of London.
