The Shard by Renzo Piano

The Shard is the tallest building in Western Europe, currently near completion. Worldwide famous architect Renzo Piano deigned the building to look like shard of the glass with its crystalline façade transforming the London skyline with a mixed-use 310 m (1,016 ft) vertical city of high-quality offices, world-renowned restaurants, the 5-star Shangri-La hotel, exclusive residential apartments and the capital's highest viewing gallery offering 360° views.

Well-connected and comprehensively serviced by central London's transport infrastructure, facilities and amenities, the Shard is a timeless reminder of the power of imagination to inspire change.
