This one’s from Silent UK who broke into the Shard in April and captured this beauty at night.
Got to love the media.
'Broke into' could be substituted for 'walked in the door' and went up some steps (albeit near an hour of climbing!). Media blows everything up into painful hype.
I quite like the building, its location I believe is very good, all around that area is on the up anyway.
The wind turbine tower over in E&C was very strangely placed (and the turbines can't be run during the day because of vibrations/noise running down inside the building) and AFAIK is STILL not fully occupied (and likely never will be) and its been there at least 18months. Same for Heron tower, there's still space going.
The guys that build these things don't expect to see returns in 1-5years, more like 20-30years, so the current economic climate isn't really too much of a bother, it will pick up (years away), but when it does, they will have tens of thousands of square footage ready on the market ahead of those that only build in times of prosperity.
