View from 6th floor, Block B, looking east. On a clear day, like today, the towers within Canary Wharf are very visible.

Photo of the cantilever steels with the decking installed for the flooring above. Once construction reaches level 8 on all floors, the steels can be removed as the cantilever becomes self-supporting. We have circled one of the Macalloy bars in red – these bars going through the entire building to basement level and are secured into the piling system in order to hold the weight of the cantilever sections.
(Completion currently estimated for September/October 2019)
Side on view looking east along Royal Mint Street. As we are closing out the works on the rear cantilever sections, the construction of the super-structure can proceed at pace, some sections will gain an extra floor every 7/10 days.
24th October and the sun is still shining bright in London. Long may it continue.
The area to the bottom left of the image shows the rebar which will eventually form both the roof of the “town houses” fronting Royal Mint Street and also the raised level communal roof gardens. The blue covered area in the bottom right of the photo is the temporary covering to the passive air vent serving the Dockland Light Railway. The apartments within this area of the concrete frame will all have views into this garden area.
