Canary warf really looks stunning.

But as for the other CBD, while in isolation each of those buildings is beautiful, the combined effect is akward and ugly. *shrudder*

I'm a big fan of most new London projects, but since the city will never build Burj Buckingham, I'd like to see the Tower Bridge pyramid remain the tallest in the city... not a fan of the rolled up newspaper.

One Canada square needs to be atleast 10 floors taller to make Canary Wharf skyline look good instead of looking like a giant wall.I like the city of London 2012 skyline.

I am in agreement i think we need to stop 'over-desgining' signature buildings, and just get on and build usable buildings. A little less fashion and a little more practicality.

Wow, it is really amazing, so much development in a weekening economy.
It does not seem to hurt London.

The economy is not weakening. It is simply slowing down to a steady pace after a period of huge growth.
