London has plenty of "filler". No worries on that account.

Three make shortlist for £1bn Silvertown Tunnel

Imagine if London has only one cluster, combined future skyline of Canary Wharf, City of London, Nine Elms, Southwark, Blackfriars, Stratford, Greenwich, Croydon and elephant & castle all located on the Isle of dogs. No doubt that London will have one of best top 10 skylines in the world and one of best skyline in Europe and the Isle of dogs going to be more like a modern version of Manhattan.

And if London city airport closed. then London definitely will increase a height of the tall building to 400m maybe even 500m in the isle of dogs.

However, London still has one of best skyline in the world with many clusters spreading out to West, East, City, South.

It's mind blowing how much is going on the amount of concrete-cores just going up in the docklands alone is impressive for a European City.

I look forward to the view from Greenwich as the skyline evolves. The new towers will extend the cluster considerably.
