"A vast galleried dining hall will be the extraordinary centrepiece of a £50-million 'mansion in the sky' at the top of the Shard, the Evening Standard has learned.
"The owners of the apartments, three two-storey duplexes and seven single-storey 'laterals', will occupy floors 53 to 65, with the top penthouse duplex at 735 feet, making it the highest dwelling between London and Russia’s Ural mountains, 2,000 miles to the east.
"... The source said:
“Nobody has tried to do something as uncompromising as this, on this sort of scale.”

Joanne McCartney AM: "Housing 'crisis' in Enfield & Haringey"
"New research by housing charity Shelter shows that Enfield’s residents are having to spend 54% of their take-home pay on rent. The average rent for a two-bedroom property in the borough is £1,049 per month. A family sized home with three bedrooms costs the equivalent of 68% of average local take-home pay. Enfield is the 21st most unaffordable borough in the country for private rented housing.
"The picture is even more stark for Haringey, whose residents pay as much as 65% of the average take-home pay on a two-bedroom home at £1,276 per month, making the borough the 13th most unaffordable borough in the country for private rented housing. Three bedroom family sized homes cost Haringey residents 75% of average take-home pay."
