Credit due to chest for the original image.

I'd imagine this will be what it will look like when topped out, of course theres no cladding there, but when it does appear, you can make out that it will make a real impact on the skyline

Fantastic photo and great bit of photoshop. I'm looking forward to taking some photos from the plant levels at the top!!

Actually I just did some copying and pasting in microsoft Paint, and should be that exact height if you look at it in comparison to Heron Tower's spire. It shouldn't look so different this time next year or perhaps near to Easter which is when i'm hoping it will top out.

Even though the floorspace is getting smaller, the cladding still needs to catch up so I think the floors will probably take the same amount of time every section (a bit like the Shard's construction actually - doing interiors, cladding and then continuing up).

i was getting worried we wouldn't be able to view the progress through the webcam because it would get taller than visible but they propped it up so phew :)

Looking at the completed photo above this surely must mean that the furthest south TC wont jump any higher, as its allready lower than the other three, and it will just be too far from the building the higher it goes

I drove by it last night and I think the cladding is amazing. It so transparent that it does not detract from the gorgeous steelwork underneath, which had been my fear. The building is wonderfully slender and almost organic with its metal guts visible. I was lukewarm about it at the start but this could be the best skyscraper in London. Spectacular architecture.
