In the middle of the two clusters there's a new cluster emerging, Seyrantepe. 287m x 2 + 200m U/C, 212m Prep and 340m + 252m Approved

it's the "Giax Tower", a residential tower of 25 floors and 90 metres of height. the tower is already topped out.

If by 'more highrises' you mean erect another 300-500 buildings over 100m, I would have to agree. Then again, you could say that for any city.

Yeah, a lot of highrises/skyscrapers would have to be build to close those gaps and to be as dense as NY, Chicago and Shanghai in order to really give them a run for their money. I don't see this happening, not even in a 100 years. A lot of historic neighborhoods would have to be destroyed for that.

I don't think it needs that sort of quantity. London is very iconic already with the like of St Pauls, Millennium Wheel, Big Ben, Swiss RE, The Shard etc. What it needs is high quality iconic structures. London has the advantage of historical icons on the skyline to not require the density that Shanghai has for instance. What it needs is well positioned and well designed high rises.

London has lots of clusters. Canary Wharf will be huge in 10 years time. The City will double in size.

Then you have the likes of 9 Elms. London is lots of little towns and these clusters signify that I think.

This is 9 Elms. Over 20 towers in and around this area of 100m plus. Currently 180m St Georges Wharf was the first major tower to be completed.

Probably the largest development site in Europe.

Ohh good shout. 2.2 km2 against 2 km2. However, 9 Elms has much higher density.

If you're talking about land area then surely Stratford in London is the largest on going redevelopment? 2.5 sq km.

So it has a higher density, good for you!
Why do you Brits (in this forum at least) always have to claim the highest, biggest, best, most expensive, most iconic...whatever. It's a little annoying and the only reason I chimed in.
