Have you actually been to London? QE Park is not a stones throw away from CW and its Westfield not West Quay, both of which are several miles from CW and the cable car goes from one windswept peninsula to a largely windswept dock. The skyscrapers are over the river in CW.

For someone who never ever posts in the actual UK section of SSC I find it odd you spend all day posting pics of London, half of which you get locations wrong or different projects and just seem to be posted to deliberately bait the same SO143 equivalent clones over in the French forum.

Quite frankly I'm surprised you are still able to post on SSC, this constantly, pointless willy waving about city's some seem to know little about just creates an endless circle of bad blood.

Rotterdam kicks well above it's weight, and I personally love Dutch tower architecture.

London has two decent clusters with excellent individual towers. The rate of construction and plans for the future are also quite staggering.

Europe has the unique advantage over the rest of the world that it holds onto so much heritage within its huge cities but are also now starting to build dynamic modern additions without completely ruining what was already there (like I think has happened in numerous cities across Asia). I honestly don't see why people in 200 years can't be looking at buildings like the Leadenhall in London and still be impressed. We are starting to really have the best of both worlds (old and new).
Very well said Sir.

The Shard is nice, but they should have build it in a shape of a white elephant.

Does Paris have a height restriction in their cluster? A lot of the buildings look very stumpy, as if they've been cut in half or designed with a taller height in mind that then fell ill of the planners.

you forgot that before to be o2 it was a financial disaster!
Only a arena project saved it! The arena wasn't planned at beginning.

for shard it is sure that one day it will be 100% occupied but not for the moment.
CW at beginning was a yet-doomed project with 0% occupation in 1990. we know where they are now.

Frankfurt has much more interesting looking buildings, as does London and Moscow.
Oh les jalouses! We're used to hearing this speech mainly from the Brits, how funny... The more you hate/bash us, the more we love it so keep up with the good work guys!

I like La Defense, and i adore Paris! I love France... but when it comes to skylines i think London is better - but its going to be. London is joint financial centre of the world alongside NYC. :-D

Im not hating nor trolling mate. :-)
