why is the LBT being built so far away from the main cluster? Also, why did they build the Canary Wharf scrapers where they are? I think if all this stuff was built in the same location...London would have one of the top skylines in the world.

Yeah, judging by that picture...it would have been pretty badass. No Chicago or Hong Kong..but defeinly tops in Europe. I saw a picture of all the other buildings they were building there..looked pretty big.

is that really what CW is going to look like in 2 years? They have to build MANY towers there fast, how are they going to do that?

Btw, are any of these towers already under construction?

There is no denying that in a few years London will have 2 of the best skylines in the world. The Canary Wharf water front is beautiful, and so is the cities. Not to forget there building a canyon of scrapers along the thames aswell

I really like the Canary Wharf Skyline in the renders. It will definitely be one of the best skylines in the world. How long before the city and Canary Wharf start to merge into one?

i dont like the london skyline of the future, too many buildings are out of shape or form and it looks horrifyingly out of proportion eg: mass distortion.
