I will be curious to see where the additional crane is going to end up. I was surprised last time when it ended up in between the memorial and the track. I don't see where it can go on the tower. My guess is that it will end up in the gap between Tower 1 and the structures to the south east.

hmm. I wasn't expecting that. For as much work that has been going on in that area I'm surprised that a crane didn't go up sooner.

The new crane is for the memorial steel and pavillion construction.

You can see the sheer scale of this building when you notice the two people in the uppermost base floor.

NY has out paced London for over 200 years... the shard might be going up quickly, but London will never experience overall growth at a rate that would bring it anywhere near NY. How many towers are going up in NY right now? I can think of at least 5 that are skyscrapers or taller. There are 6 super-talls that are approved or are in preparation, and there are 4 more regular skyscrapers approved/in preparation. NYC is now has more super-tall projects than skyscraper projects! London has what, Canada Square as its next tallest? Its only 50 stories! NY alone literally has 56 buildings 50 floors or taller. Get off your high horse. People in the US like the Shard, we think its great that its going up fast.

Show some camaraderie for the architecture of both cities instead of being a jerk.

Both cities are great but in highrises and supertalls London doesn't stand a chance. That's just how it is
