I really really like this Tower! The shape is very cool it will be such a landmark for London! Does it have an observation deck? Indoor or outdoor? It really looks amazing! Will probably be close to being done by the summer olympics this year

Thanks. All great pics, but I like that I can see my office in this one... Cottons Centre, cream coloured, step fronted building overlooking the river on left edge of photo...

^ Seems I was in London today too!
Here's a few of my amature shots.







Made me jump seeing it for the first time up close.

EDIT: EEP, a bit large. Umm- not sure how to fix that.

It should be near 980-990 feet. About to or already has eclipsed 1000 feet (can't tell for sure since I don't live in London).

That last shot is incredible. Good to see some steel going up on The Place. Looks like it's moving pretty quickly.

The base of the tower is now beginning to take shape and the glazing at the top is continuing..

There has been some rapid progress on this now, it looks fantastic as part of the London skyline.
