The Shard London Bridge

Monday, April 02, 2012

Originally known as London Bridge Tower [or The Shard, The Shard of Glass and 32 London Bridge], the Shard London Bridge is soon-to-be the tallest building in the European Union. The Shard London Bridge’s construction is scheduled to be completed sometime in May 2012 reaching a total height of 1,017 feet [310 meters] and will be open to the public beginning June 2012. There will be a number of 87 floors, 72 business and residential floors and 15 additional levels in the roof.

While proceeding to our day’s schedule [the London Walk], Lo and Bebe showed me the really tall striking London Bridge Tower which was standing right outside the London Bridge Tube station. My oh my --- the glass-covered skyscraper was really impressively high and pretty!

When the building’s ready for occupancy, The Shard is going to be a home for offices, restaurants, Shangri-La Hotel [levels 34-52], a spa, residential apartments [floors 53-65], an observatory, spire floors and of course a ground floor lobby.

Yup. I am excited to go back when it’s done. Hopefully, I can check it out at nighttime. Love city lights, baby!

How about you? Have you seen the Shard London Bridge already? When?
