And I thought the WTC site was a nightmare. Holy moly talk about a lack of space.

It's just a marketing trick... nothing to do with reality though.

Anyway, it's not about the height... 300m is tall enough. What matters the most is the amazing design. A very elegant and sophisticated one which would be very much wanted in NYC, Shanghai or Dubai. Can't wait to see it going up.

I can see the cranes from my livingroom window (live in Waterloo).

Will post pix when the tower begins to rise.

No, this is not so. Your words are far from a reality.

I think most people now say, 'the tallest building in the EU on completion'.


I don't know if anyone posted the story in this thread but the other day there was a news story where the project Manager said that floors will be rising before christmas, and the tower would be complete in May 2012 I think it said. However it will top out long before that.

There's a video going around showing the whole construction plan. We will probably start seeing the first floors by Christmas time. There's a lot of work to do.

Is it just me...but having been to the top of the Eiffel Tower this building (whilst only a few metres shorter) looks nowhere near as tall.

Too bad this render doesn't show the new cladding for Guy's Hospital.

That would be totally awesome.

You're right. Guy's Hospital will have a fresher face.

Not really, only Eurasia is on hold the rest are U/C. I'm betting Federation Tower or even Mercury City Tower will be completed before 'The Shard'!
