Pity about the missing 40 floors. Still it already looks striking don't it.

Are you refering to Mr P's recently completed other fine work? I bet they multi colour this at Christmas.

It's a while since I was last in London and I haven't seen this going up. Not sure if I like the building (although I like the photo) - it looks a bit like Blackpool Tower with glass cladding to me.

skida, ~ Hi again Keith ~ Well there is no escaping it :) ~ I suspect that once it is finished it will be rather elegant ~ time will tell ~ All the best to you ~ nick

By the looks of it, last week, it's nearly complete. Who will be the first to take a shot when it's all done?

Nigel Brown, Thanks for that bit of news Nigel ~ I plan to go back down there when the light is good early one Sunday morning. As far as I remember its original completion date was due to be May of this year. ~ All the best ~ nick
