I make it 17 over 150m and over 23 if 140m+ on the Isle of Dogs including those under construction (not those projected in phase 2 of Wood Wharf, Riverside South etc). Canary Wharf will look more impressive. This is before you get to the City, Nine Elms and low rise 'highrises' in stratford.

London will stand alone in Western Europe. Incredible stuff. There will also be 3 clusters will others scattered here and there like Stratford and Croydon, Elephant etc.From Shooters Hill and Greenwich Park, I can't see any city looking like London on scale.

There is a negative though... CAA limits. That said, even with Hermitage in La Defense, taken as a whole, with Nine Elms, City and Canary Wharf, it is an incredible image, and one in fantasy land just a decade ago!

However, in the distant future, I pin my hopes on a supertall in Manchester!! I think some London only based forumers will have quite a suprise in Manchetser come 2020/21.

Correct, but the original statement that La Defense currently has more skyscrappers than CW or the City is correct. However that won't last for much longer and in terms of quality its light years behind..

What's with the street lamps. Are they switched off or do you manage to supress them? It looks like its dark but maybe that is a trick of the light. Excellent pictures.

Thanks for the pictures everyone! Nice to see the crown being assembled.
This could actually turn out to be one of my favourite skyscrapers in London. It's looking absolutely wonderful!

No Expert..... some incredible angles there. It looks like a north American cluster.

That's awesome. May I suggest you try reversing it, zooming out. I suspect it may be more powerful as a 'reveal'.
