very good job.
Comments:
- apartments are floors 53-65 (instead of 64)
- the viewing galleries are floors 68-72, at 244m.
- the plants (radiator) are 75-87, higher than the mentioned 267m. Look:

This is gonna be a stunner when finished.

I'm not sure whether this project will be on target to be topped out by late 2010 though.

What models of Terex tower cranes are employed at construction?
Is there anybody who has more detailed photos with cranes specification on towers?

It will reach its full height at the end of 2010, and the whole thing will be complete by May 2012.

That would be roundabout 25 meters or 6 stories every month on average. Should be a nice time following this thread.

this is as accurate as i can get it.

ive worked out concrete core reaches 240m. above this is steel frame.
there are 3 core sizes, which taper from 138/190m/240m.
worked out top of radiator is about 900ft./276m.

That's fantastic work, Rich. Many thanks for that.

And to think, we're only 2 weeks from seeing the core rising... Some of us have waited nearly 10 years for this.

The construction progress of this tower is another indicator that Britain has become a second/third class country
