Europe’s tallest building stands at 310 metres (1,016ft) and is fully clad in glass. Facilities will include a hotel, restaurant, viewing platform, flats and offices. The Shard will be open to the public with a viewing gallery and observation deck on the 72nd floor. Work on the Shard began in February 2009 and an estimated £450million has been spent on its construction so far. The tower has two main tenants lined up – Shangri-La Hotels, who will be occupying floors 34-52 – and Transport for London who will take some of the office space.
