Pretty fast construction progress. For a tower being build in London

This is one beautiful tower. All it needs is a giant can of shaving cream put next to it (just kidding).

This is going to be one of the most sinister looking towers in the world. Not bad at all considering the part of London it is being built in, you wouldn't expect something this good.

What area is this being built in again, was it the Elephant.

If so that area is rough, and for a tower like this to be built there, is just mind blowing.

Its a great design, and one of my favourite projects going on in the UK at the moment!
