Some photos taken first thing this morning

A ticket office for the Shard's public gallery has been inserted into the hoarding for The Place and was open for business, apparently.




Canopies on St Thomas Street look just about complete. Work is underway for paving outside the hotel entrance along St Thomas Street.




Team Extreme were out again this morning, cleaning the south side.

The View as it called is official open or not yet?

The Place is so beautiful and complements the Shard perfectly. Straight, sharp lines, against a gentle, elegant curve.

And it has the coolest name you could give a building. Now we know where the place is.

I think the Shard looks the best in the early evening.
This building is yet another example of design > height.
