I'm moving over to england in july, and I've been a bit distraught with the fact that I won't get to see some of the awesome towers goin up here in brissie (oz) However, in saying that I cannot WAIT to get to london and watch LBT going up. IMO, it is one of the finest future buildings in the world. A true beauty!!!

Wow, Brunswick Quay in L'pool and West Point Tower in Leeds are great. Broadgate Tower in London reminds me of BOC in HK.

Good thread BC

I had no idea Bridgewater Place was under construction, shows how much I've been following places outside of London

Leeds, Birmingham, Manchester, London and Liverpool are only the Top Skyscraper Cities in the UK.

In My Opinion. The Top 5 Cities in the UK:

1. London

2. Leeds

3. Nottingham

4. Sheffield

5. Birmingham
