London | April 2013

Photos taken today by forumer Core Rising, showing the developing skyline from the east (from the Emirates Air Line cable car). 20 Fenchurch Street extends the City cluster southwards, with the Leadenhall Building providing added height. 25 Churchill Place adds density to the Canary Wharf cluster:

The plans for the new building at 5 Cheapside are extremely dour looking, as far as I can see. Disappointing.

An eye watering amount. I'll tally up the cost of some of the more large scale projects, but they alone are nowhere near the total.
