The Shard at London Bridge :: TQ3280

A 72-storey office building and hotel, constructed from 2009-2012 as the centre of the London Bridge Quarter development on the South bank of the Thames. The skyscraper is, at 310m tall, for a while the tallest building in the European Union and the 45th tallest building in the world. It is the second tallest free-standing structure in the United Kingdom after the 1,084 ft (330.4m) Emley Moor transmitting station.

The tower was designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, and cost 450 million. The Government of Qatar financed the building and its Prime Minister declared it open on 5 July 2012. It opened to the public in February 2013.
