Not a lot. ~15% IIRC.

I'm not usually a fan of the sinsiter elements but I LOVE THIS! Halliburton, Fox News, Dow Chemical, and the New World Order would be right at home in this tower of terror, but I sure wouldn't mind joining them. Huzzah!

Thanks to fitz for the pictures. These were taken over a week ago. According to wjfox, the core is up another floor now.

Elephant and Castle south of the river. This could help give an idea:



You can see the Barbican, St. Pauls and the Tate in the distance.
