London has quadrupled its number of skyscrapers in the last 5 years, and built the multi-awarding winning 30 St Mary Axe.

We currently have 8 buildings over 100m under construction, including a couple of 500-footers, plus the world's largest football stadium which features a 400ft arch; and many other huge projects around the city. In the next 6 months we can expect Shard London Bridge, Bishopsgate Tower, 122 Leadenhall and 20 Fenchurch Street to begin groundwork (this is pretty much confirmed now); in around 12 months we can expect Heron Tower, Beetham Tower and St George's Wharf to start; not to mention a huge number of midrises; plus tons of massive regeneration projects like Wood Wharf, Elephant and Castle, Greenwich Peninsula, Kings Cross, Stratford City and the Olympic stadium, etc...

FYI European, in my experience the finest online dictionary can be located at the Merriam-Webster site:

I thought you said you were a happy chap & there you are getting all arsey & throwing a hissy fit- You cant be bothered to read this thread then do like I say & ignore the thread instead of coming back on here & being a knob.

I dont give a shit what moderators say & come on these forums because I happen to like modern architecture - you on the other hand write a derogatory comment about the thread & London skyscraper development in general (obvisouly ignorant as you would know why theres a lot of proposals but not much actual construction) so my simple advice was stay out the thread then.

You can spend the next 24 hours in the Brig. Maybe you can think about changing your attitude.
