That's an amazing shot, chest. Love the juxtaposition with the mast.

cheers - one of the architects inspirations for the Shard apart from church spires were ships masts - which I didn't really understand until photographing the Shard from an area of the Thames that hs many boats docked with masts...

There will be a four storey observation platform on floors 68-72.

The current composition of the tower is as follows:
2-28: offices
31-33: restaurants
34-52: shangri-la hotel
53-65: residential
68-72: observation platform


Excellent pics once again chest.

Didn't realize, or forgot, it was going to have so many uses.

I guess in a Europe-kinda way it's quick. But 2 and a half years is a long time for something that's not really considered a superstructure anymore by today's standards. Also, doesn't 87 floors cramped into 1000 ft equate roughly to 11 and a half feet per floor?

from Waterloo Bridge
there are several other towers going up in that view but are not yet showing to any great degree on the skyline. 'The Pinnacle' will appear to be around the same height as the Shard (it's slightly shorter but on higher ground) will appear to the left of the Gherkin - you can see 3 small cranes gathered together in a gap.

Yea if it took 21/2 years that is just normal construction pace. For example the bank of america tower in atlanta is 317m and was completed in only 14 months, Now thats a quick finish. However this tower is so much more elegant and is revolutionary for london so its doesnt really matter how long it took Im just glad that it was built probably going to be one of my favorite towers of all time when finished,
