Featured in Construction Digital; The Shard and Heron Tower to Be the Tallest and Biggest Buildings in Europe

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - November 15, 2010) - Construction Digital, the top digital media source for global construction news and information investigates the Shard and Heron Tower, projects designed to enhance the aesthetics, economy and quality of life in London. While some construction projects have been put on hold or downsized due to financial constraints, the Shard and Heron Tower projects reveal a glimmer of hope that the construction industry will soon recover.

At 310 meters, the Shard will be the tallest building in London and all of Europe. Though the project had financing troubles early on, funding came through the State of Qatar. "We are confident that the Shard will become a landmark on the London skyline and a symbol of the close ties between Qatar and the United Kingdom," said Sheikh Abdulla Bin Saoud Al-Thani, Governor of Qatar Central Bank in the article.

Opening in 2011, the Heron Tower will be the latest addition to the Financial District of London. In addition to over 40,000 square meters of office space, it features a 70,000 liter aquarium filled with fish from the Great Barrier Reef. Read the full article
