A render of 52 Lime Street, 192m, The City of London, London.

It is one of the three next wave of skyscrapers for The City of London that are currently U/C, the other being Principal Place 161m and 100 Bishopsgate 172m.

London has had a bad relationship with tall buildings in the past, when during the 60's and 70's many ghastly and ill thought out estates were built as a replacement for the old housing stock destroyed in WW2, and also replacing many substandard Victorian terraces. This then equated to a dislike of high-rises as local residents equated tall buildings as pretty much hideous.

It's not until 2000 that tall buildings have become more in fashion, with the rising population it is becoming a necessity to build up. However London has many sight lines that protect the views of St Pauls, Tower of London etc, this prohibits building high-rises in quite a large part of London.

To put it in perspective Paris has 73 +100m buildings and London has 49, which includes 4 Topped out buildings.

London and Moscow will definitely look really cool


There was a 365 meter tower proposed in Frankfurt too but I don't know if that's still alive

Looking at this I can't help but thinking that even if all those skylines look great, it feels like all the cities are starting to look the same. Who can tell the difference between a skyscraper in London and one in Istanbul?

I guess it's normal, it's globalization and stuff but I mourn the times when architecture was geographically unique.

In Istanbul you have twins and mostly blue cladding (at least at the old tower)

Mitsubishi Tower

Height: 168m

Proposed building, part of the next wave of potential skyscrapers being built in the City of London. The next door Pinnacle site should submit planning soon, thus we will see the buildings true mass and form since the redesign.

Agreed, but I think London will always be beaten by Paris when it comes to skyline due to Paris's more centralized approach.

London has many clusters, and I think there is room for more, but it can only win on other categories than disadvantage mono clusters. London is more like Tokyo in this respect.

...Well all you need to do is start posting information about the development of other cities. It's that simple.
