Thats gonna be a treat! guess i came just in time. Now lets see if i come tomorow
Can you imagine how the skyline will effect London's foreign image if we get to host the Olympics. A load of people from around the world would get to see our new skyline. Not the most dense cluster but deffinitely the most stylish, ey?

I seriously reflect that each and every one of those skyscrapers will, if built, recieve major major media hype since each project is not ''just another skyscraper'' because firstly, they'll be built in G.London. Secondly, each one has a unique element about them; minerva being the BIGGEST, Willis being a Foster design, Leadenhall being a stupendous addition to new designs. Same propeties in LBT as Leadenhall (both brilliant). Thirdly, all to be topped with the peak of compostion, DIFA!

this thread's gone a bit quiet.

Will you might wanna add the Beetham news from the ES and the Updated DIFA stuff.

Ontario tower is also well underway, and Lime Street will start to rise very quickly.

There's no 'news' in the ES... don't bother Will, just keep what's already been in BD.

There isn't much in it, but Minerva is slightly larger (though DIFA has some larger floorplates). Minerva would also have a higher public restaurant.

I've updated the summary on the 1st page - several projects added, plus I've moved all the "active" projects up to the main list to give them a bit more significance.

DIFA has now overtaken LBT as the tallest proposal

Did you have a look at St George's Wharf? That huge crane was there.

Is it U/C?

Nah, I think it's the final 'tower' of the St Georges Wharf building. They've just completed the exterior of the fourth one I think

but as soon as that is done, then hopefully St George's should start, hopefully the property market forecasts won't affect it as its a high profile project. Just imagine the views at night with the eye and Parliament lit up

Taller doesn't necessarily mean bigger.

Churchill Place (156m) in the Docklands has more floorspace than Tower 42 (183m) and SwissRe (180m) combined!
