You know I walk past this every day but the site looks so small to imagine that a 1000 footer will be rising on it.

The Walbrook looked like it had a bigger floorplate - and when they were doing the piling, they excavated a good 50 feet below OD! I guess they cant do that with LBT because of the Jubilee line underneath it

Jubilee line is a long long way underground. At least 50m.

This rendering shows plans for a possible recladding of the neighbouring Guys Hospital (regularly voted London's ugliest building) -

It would definitely fit in better with the Shard if it was reclad.

PLEASE reclad it, or demolish it! Looks terrible. Even if they painted it, it would be something. The reclad render looks quite nice as well.

Ha, pretty sure he was. If they carry out the reclad like that render it'll look increadible imo, very unsual and interesting, but will compliament the Shard perfectly without being a dull box (ie Baby Shard/Gem thing).

It's British, British, London is the capital of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. This is our nation, made up of individual countries so if I see 'London England' one more time on a hollywood film I will scream. It is not hard to understand. Yes it is the capital of England, but also the capital of the UK.

Also what do you mean finally? Gherkin etc etc ? Been to the UK have you?

Yep, I think he's crazy.
The Broadgate Tower's also new, and also our much-loved 1 Canada Square, (and I suppose 8 and 25 Canada Square as well.)
So yeah, he's crazy.

I think he thinks only the 'super talls' are decent buildings. You are right , all the liested buildings just then are outstanding, I think also Beetham tower manchester (love it or hate it) is fantastic too. Pluss the pinnacle, Heron going up.. All great.

I wonder how much it will be to take a trip up to the observation floor. Bet that won't come cheap! I think it is safe to say though that it won't stop many people who watching this go up, me included
