Is Renzo Piano's "Shard of Glass" (Tower Gate Building?) going ahead or was that only a concept design?

Thanks for the link it is interesting

Arup and Atkins have been appointed as the team to scope design for the London Olympic facilities;

I'm sure that the stadium at least will make a good impact on the skyline of East London
