Oops! Someone dumped a bunch of rubble in front of the viewing window, so there might not be updates for a while.

i love this design but it hope there arnt too many new skyscrapers around the same site because i think it could overload the skyline. espectialy 20 Fenchurch Street ( ), i think it could really REALLY ruin the skyline!

With the four cranes in place, the Pinnacle site looks like a real construction site now.

Steel work finally coming in. The site is starting to look a lot cleaner now that excavation is done.

stupid question

I'm an avid follower of SSP - but do not actually know much about construction procedures. As Bishopsgate Tower is getting the foundation/parking structure gets built up, are those braces removed (are they braces I see - or are they pipes/utilities)?

The braces get removed. Those are just for temporary shoring.
