slightly off topic!

the cheese grater (also known as leadenhall building) is going to be one of the best and most unique skyscrapers in the world when it is done.

1/3 of it's office spaces will be occupied by the world's largest insurance company and this will make the strength of london financial centre even more powerful.

So, why would you exclude Russia, if Russia is a european country and Moscow clearly lies within Europe?

And that second statement won't get truer, the more you repeat it. It is not even Europe's most expensive Building!

You did forget iconic there, silly! As, of course, every single London skyscraper is, even if it is just a render so far!

Gosh, you are such a terrible, crazy, broken advertising record. I used to love London, but over time you have completely ruined it for me. And I'm not the only one here in this forum.

Tiaren. he means the net-worth, not only construction costings and he is refering to single houses, not a complex. For more have a look here

i guess i have been brainwashed by your fellow crazy german, mr cosmo who's indeed brilliant at teaching geography!!!

let me fix my earlier statement, "the shard is not only the first supertall in the European Union (EU) but the current tallest building. happy now?

you clearly have no clue about how expensive the land value in london is. also bare in mind that a tall office tower was demolished in order to build the shard.

the office spaces/land values in london are the most expensive in the world, the second most expensive city in this aspect is new york.

my promotion is not as good as saying "berlin the most diverse, tallest, biggest and iconic skyline in europe" that's indeed laughable, unrealistic and childish ...

He's an immigrant to the U.K and he's actually getting paid to promote London on Internet forums. True story.

I'm pretty sure that goes against the rules of this forum but since most of the mods and admins are from the U.K, he's getting a free pass. They even cancel warnings and bans he gets in some parts of the forum.

He's their useful idiot. They need him.

Then he should be fired asap, because he does a terrible job.

whut? Who told you?

BTW: Cosmo is main author of the wikipedia article of Berlin. He is on a same mission, like SO.
Looks as if both have no idea how they should perform right.

The difference being that SO hasn't got the brains to co author an article on wikipedia.
He's a copy pasting machine. Oh wait, on second thoughts he may actually have what it takes.
