London's tallest building opens - with empty floors!

Standing 309.6 metres (1,016 ft) above ground level, it is the tallest building in the European Union as of July 2012. At the time of the Shard's official opening, there are still no confirmed occupants, though it is expected that there would be full occupancy by the end of 2014.
