Shard London Bridge becomes the UK’s tallest skyscraper

The Shard London Bridge, currently under construction, has been crowned the UK’s tallest skyscraper.

The tower, designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, outgrew previous holder Canary Wharf’s One Canada Square, which stands at 235m (771ft).

I live fairly close to the Shard and have been noticing the speed with which it has been growing over recent weeks.

I really like the design and am eagerly anticipating its completion, I think it will be a great addition to the London skyline.

I also love the fact it will have a public viewing platform, so few places to see London from that kind of perspective.
