This was news to me, never heard a thing about this.
Shard London Bridge, also known as London Bridge Tower, the Shard of Glass, 32 London Bridge and The Shard is a supertall skyscraper under construction in Southwark, London. When completed in 2012 it will be the tallest building in the United Kingdom and one of the tallest buildings in Europe.
The Shard was announced with the hope that it will be the tallest building in Europe on completion, surpassing Frankfurt's Commerzbank Tower, which at 259 m (850 ft) had been the tallest building in Europe since 1997.
In addition to the tower, there will be major improvements to London Bridge station and the surrounding area. As part of a Section 106 legal agreement, these will include a new concourse and public piazza, affordable housing and regeneration programmes. A new museum will also be built.
