London is coming up with a new skyscraper. Called The Shard, which is also called as London Bridge Tower, the building is set to be 1017 ft tall and is actually under construction. The number of floors would be 72 and is scheduled to be completed in 2012. Although the building is not very tall when compared to skyscrapers in Asia or USA, the uniqueness of The Shard lies in its architecture.
“Designed by the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, the 72-story tower has several twisting glass facets on its exterior, and inside, will have offices, apartments, restaurants and a 15-story observation gallery.”
