It's taken further to the east around the Shooters Hill/Woolwich area. Greenwich is visible however (look for the four chimneys in the centre of the photo).

I'm so happy to see my favorite city -sorry my fellow New Yorkers- becoming more vertical. As one of the dual financial capitals of the world, it needs and deserves more office space in the form of striking contemporary skyscrapers. After spending a summer there I was left scratching my head, pondering where this business/media/education/political capital puts all it's condos and offices.

I'd say it's T/O now (or very very very close). All that's left is the pinnacles/fins on top.

Looks like such a natural and fitting addition to the skyline from that hill. What a view those people must have.

Can't wait to see this complete or at least topped out in person this summer.

Just fly to London, take the train to Chrystal Palace Rail Station and walk down the A214 (Anerley Hill) to the Woodland Road.

Don´t forget your camera^^
