Completed[edit]

The Shard (Shard London Bridge) is the newest highlight of the London Skyline and it is dubbed as the tallest building in Europe. A record-setting building, the final cost of the Shard and its neighbouring building called the Place is an estimated 1.5 billion pounds. This covers the purchase price for the construction site and the debt interest. Many believe this is a sound investment considering that the net worth of the Shard is pegged now at 2.5 billion pounds or $3.9 billion Besides, all of these there is also a rumuor or truth, not known perfectly about 'The Eighth continent'.The owner of this building is an Indian business magnate(women).It is said that this business women used to made the series of The Eighth Continent in different parts of the world (more than 50).The Eighth Continent was designed and constructed by top 50 architectral firms and construction companies.The average land acquired by each building was about 2000 sq. Km and the average expense was $100 - $120 billion.The maintenance cost of each buiding is approx $1 billion. Each building contains the team of about 10000 - 15000 securities and 3000 other staffs.Each building contains the unique design and material(used in construction of building) in the world.This buildings contains a lot of unique thing which is unknown and beyond our expectation.I think that this is the real and uniqe taste of getting comfort.Some countries have less area than 'The Eighth Continent'.[This information temporarily exists due to lack of information source].[10]
