This building is very impressive. Any thoughts on its opening date?

The viewing gallery opens in February 2013, with the Hotel/Offices and apartments to follow Summer 2013 onwards.

I really like the brick section. Complements the silver glass well.

I agree London would benefit from a couple more supertall buildings. I love this building but I've never been struck on the name "the Shard".

I was finally able to see the shard in person last week!

I was staying at friends near Elephant and Castle and was surprised how HUGE it looks from that area. It's clearly 'there', in your face. I like it

I was also surprised that almost everybody I met was interested in it. Some in a positive way and some negative but everybody was talking about it. It's a new landmark, that's for sure.

I hope you enjoyed your stay Atmosphere! I can see the Shard from Windsor (24 miles from the Shard) - it's a landmark here too!

Just finished my first shoot for 2013 over #London. Here we are tracking past the Shard just before dusk.
