THE VIEW FROM THE SHARD | LONDON UK
Location: 32 London Bridge Street, Southwark, London, England
The Shard is an 87-storey skyscraper in London that forms part of the London Bridge Quarter development. It is also well know as the Shard of Glass, Shard London Bridge and formerly London Bridge Tower. The construction of the building began in March 2009 and finally opened to the public on 1 February 2013.
Standing approximately 306 meters (1,004 ft) the Shard is currently the tallest building in the European Union.
The tower was designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano and replaced Southwark Towers , a 24-storey office block built on the site in Southwark in 1975. The Shard is the second-tallest free-standing structure in the United Kingdom, after the 330-metre concrete transmission tower at Emley Moor.
Nowadays the Shard dominates the city of London skyline as seen from everywhere. The Shard may eventually be surpassed as the EU's tallest building by the 323-metre Hermitage Plaza building, which is planned to be completed in Paris in 2017.
