    I like tall stuff, though the highest I've been is 18 floors I think?
    Twenty seven floors up, amazing view, sounds great. Can't
    help thinking that access might be an issue though? Walked
    past a block of flats yesterday under going re-furb, bottom
    three floors totally boarded up.

    Tower one and three is still lived in so walk ways to all three block is still open. Plus there squatters in there now :D

    I did work in Canary Wharf Dockland on the 42nd - 44th floors 1997 - could feel the tower move!
    Never had a digital camera then. my standed camera back then, the flash would just go off.
