I like some London towers individually (Swiss Re and Shard above all), but the skyline per se lacks grace, in my opinion.
London's skyline lacks grace ?

Explain please ?

You might disagree, but why the surprise? Perhaps he means the lack of uniformity (considered by many to be a good thing). I'd say, a focus on those dire buildings that line the north bank of the City would do it. 20 Fenchurch Street might also make a contribution.

When do we expect the bulk of what's planned for the London skyline to be completed? In other words, what would be a good year for a skyscraper aficionado to visit? For instance, here in Miami, I would say give us until 2020 to get the house in order.

London was heavily bombed by the Nazis in world war two

And I'm afraid it shows ... Many, many beautiful buildings were lost forever ..

Paris was'nt bombed.

It's a render showing what the view will be from the Prime Corporate Center, a 96m tower whose construction has started this week.

So were many cities, some of which much, much worse than London, and they don't keep whining about it.

Anyway, London seems to be evolving much more randomly than Frankfurt or even Milan, with skyscrapers forests growing almost uncontrolled in several random sites around town. Some towers also have a tacky design (i.e. the walkie-talkie, which is also dangerous for those standing below it).

Also, as already said, the current horrible buldings on the North bank of the Thames aren't really a good foreground, even for the best skyscrapers.

Bombed or not. You walk around London or Paris and the London architecture is jaw dropping on every corner.

It's hard to say.

What they have planned now will all likely to be up by 2020.

In my work we estimate that 10-15% of all projects never leave the drawing board in a straight lining economy.

In a city like London where it's bursting at the seams and needs extroadinary housing and commercial growth you could probably round that figure down to under 10%.

I would suspect whats been proposed now. Majority will be up by 2020.

Canary Wharf has 30+ 150m towers planned and it looks like 4 200m+ will start this year.

What would really be interesting is what is proposed in between now and that time frame.

It is highly plausible that another 'supertall' makes an appearance in the planning portal.
