There are 100's of laws preventing this... remember Central London (The City, Westminster etc etc) itself is the size of an average City. So the Centre is becoming highrise.

London will be dynamic.. the only truly structures modern area is Canary Wharf in the docklands with a very Americanised Skyline - which looks beautiful.

The City (and Central London) is more diverse.. revolutionary and elegant. London does not allow trashy buildings to be built - the ones that were built are slowly being taken down or redeveloped. London still has one of the highest standards when it comes to architectual image.

London will only go forward. Regardless... It is going to change. London NEEDS highrises and skyscrapers. We have ran out of room.

Exactly and i totally agree with you. However, the reason why tall buildings are now being built in London is because of high demand from international banks and companies who like to invest in the city and expand their existing office spaces, but not to make the city looks beautiful or compare with other European skylines. Developers can't be stopped from building plenty of new tall buildings all over London (except restricted areas of course). IMO it is a good thing. London is a working city and it should warmly welcome anyone who likes to invest, build the headquarters and do their businesses safely. Chancellor is now trying to set London to become the global centre for trading in Chinese "Yuan" and he recently signed to build a new Chinese business district just next to Canary Wharf and there are also many proposed and approved towers which will be part of CW cluster in a few years. So, do not worry about it for being a small skyline. It will be expanded year by year.
