Looks like the core rose a couple of levels, no?

No, the core hasn't risen since the last update I posted. Compare this view from December

with this view from now


In both photos, 3 levels are visible in the core below the formworks.

Financing has been secured.

Funding deal sees Pinnacle restart for Brookfield

Brookfield will be able to complete the £1bn Pinnacle tower in the City of London as full funding for the stalled project is set to be agreed later this month.

Brookfield to restart London Pinnacle next week
Aaron Morby | Tue 28th June | 7:52

Contractor Brookfield is understood to have been instructed to restart work on the stalled Pinnacle tower in London.

Arab Investments, the asset manager for the building, is on the verge of completing a finance deal with a consortium of banks, and is anxious to resume building to meet the predicted office space shortage in the city.

The 64-storey Pinnacle project in Bishopsgate stalled just as the first Byrne Brothers poured concrete core rose out of the basement level. Cranes stood idle for much of this year on the city site waiting for a full funding deal to be thrashed out.

During this time there have been several occasions when the job was said to be ready to restart but the site remained closed. This time round Brookfield has been formally instructed to restart building work, according to reports.

Khalid Affara, managing director of Arab Investments, told the Financial Times: “The Pinnacle has agreed with Brookfield to commence the final phase of construction works at the end of June to enable delivery of the City’s tallest building by 2014.

“The Pinnacle is a unique product at 945ft and will be delivered into a market where there will be a shortage of high-quality office space.”

The tower, also dubbed the Helter-Skelter for its corkscrew design rather than the twists and turns experienced with financing the job, was designed by architects Kohn Pedersen Fox.

The building will contain more solar panelling than any other building in the UK, with 2,000sq m of photovoltaic solar cells, generating up to 200 kilowatts of electricity

Once completed in 2014, the Pinnacle will stand as the tallest skyscraper in the city of London.

Great news. I was just wondering about the status of this one the other day while looking at photos of the Shard.

This tower will easily be the envy of just about every major city in the world once completed! I don't doubt it. Where can a tower like this be found other than in London? I really like the direction New York, Paris and London have gone in terms of choice of materials and cutting edge designs these cities are using for their post year 2000, post year 2010 skyscrapers. Very flattering stuff, brings architectural flowers and drops them smack dab in the middle of our skylines

Is it just me, or do British construction sites look neater and better-organized than American ones?

I think this one is especially tidy because it's been on hold for a few months, and they've kept busy by tidying stuff up.

All the blue and bare concrete make me think of a Mirror's Edge level.

Has this beauty resumed yet? One would think that as one of the world's top 3 financial centers, there's demand to fill this tower very quickly. The City of London's skyline is like a Faberge egg (i.e., small but beautiful).
