That doesnt make London a city of tall buildings. London is a nice city, dont get me wrong, but it will never be a major skyscraper center.

And your groundings are based on what? It won't be major in the World but definitely it's now major in Europe. London is full of tall buildings and this number is set to grow in the next 5 years.

Londons skyline is just way to spread out. If it was denser it could compete with some of the best.

Its 82yrs old, and I am sure the concrete will be cleaned soon. The entrance is nice and the interior is stunning. Maybe you should see it first.

Whats better? The only one I can think of is the Chrysler building. Also please dont say the Petronas towers, Burj khalifa, Shard,ect. because they don't even come close. Look at the detail in this building, thats why its still the best.

ESB was incredible 50 years ago. But now its not that incredible... I prefer a lot the chrysler, but I think we shouldn't get stuck in the past. Now there are much incredible buildings than the ESB... With better materials and better shapes.

So what just because a building is newer its superior. The ESB is working hard on becoming environmental. The ESB built with the best there was at the time and it did it well. It still stands up today.
There are no earthquakes in NYC and the lifts are plenty fast.
I know you're just dying to say the Petronas are better but no they are not. In fact they cant even compete, with the Chrysler at least.

Modern buildings are overated.
