This... looks... AMAZING. Never knew this came this far. It looks near enough completed?

I bet it looks awesome from Westminster Bridge and the London Eye.

I usually dislike cylindrical towers but this one is quite elegant & fits perfectly in Vauxhall.

Yeah I agree. Rarely do I like cylindrical towers - but it's so elegant and "clean". I also love how it is right on the river bank! Looks fantastic!

Today I had lunch on the roof (Selfridges they've opened it for the staff to have lunch) I was really impressed with how massive this tower looked from that rare vantage point, it also made me thinks about how great that area will look if the other proposed towers go ahead.

I'm not too sure... I believe the interior is being fitted atm.

I think there are some details on the roof that are still being done but externally its almost 98% finished I believe.
