The Shard

6 of 13

Opening in June at the foot of London Bridge, Renzo Piano’s 1,016-foot-high triangular tower seizes the title of Western Europe’s tallest, cloud-scraping building, with an observation deck that promises 40-mile city views and easy access from high-speed elevators (beginning in February 2013). The glass-encased floors are filled with a mix of offices, apartments, upscale restaurants, and guest rooms at a Shangri-La hotel.
