Mate - so proud. Ace work. You’re my hero.
It is always a pleasure to post here @Lee - keep up with the excellent work you doing!
Fantastic pics Frank, I’ve taken the liberty of cross posting them on Skyscrapercity.com where I’m sure you will gain many fans.
Here is a link to developments in and around Stratford
I encourage you to keep up your photo diary and cross post to the relevant thread.

The ‘slice’ in the building is starting to show - they’ve taken down the scaffolding that was there before.
I bet the person taking that scaffolding down was sweating. It’ll be the most dangerous game of Jenga he’s ever played!

I used to work for a company which had its HQ in Seattle, would visit there once a year or so, and they were in the Rainier Tower which I can’t help but be reminded of, structurally if not aesthetically.
Lol, oops indeed!

Just pay attention to the amount of cranes that is in that shot.
