Shard has finished exterior construction but the interior is yet to be finished, such as cladding the walls, bathroom fixtures, internal pipes, air conditioner ducts.

It will take around 6-8 months before its done.

For the banner you need a panorama shot.

Anyway, great pics. They should keep that light on the tower permanently.

The lower two levels, according to Bloomberg. The hotel is still yet to build out and office and residential floors are available for lease. The upper observation floors will open next year.

I have to say the pics of this lighting scheme are hilarious. Not necessarily bad, but I am laughing out loud at how over-the-top it all is.

And it's not the lighting scheme, it was a light display for the buildings opening.

I think it's ugly, plus it seems completely out of place in a city like London.

I don't know what others have said about this tower and I'm just expressing my opinion and the fact that it seems to be a common opinion according to you, should tell you something, so don't post an immature reply kid, when someone doesn't share your opinion.
