Isn't Bluewater technically based in Kent outside the Greater London area?

Yes Bluewater is just outside the London city limits.

In the same way that La Defense is located in Hauts-de-Seine just outside the Paris city limits, or that Salford Quays is located in Salford just outside the Manchester city limits.

Hence this is the city/metro forum.

the Pinnacle was my favorite tower for London, why did it have to be that one on hold/redesigned? Just my luck...

Now my favorite project is that Canary Wharf station, wow, just stunning.

Why don't they refurbish the platform aswell? My least favourite station by far.

That's my favourite one. It would be amazing if City's skyline was already EXACTLY like this render. Yet, it is incomplete, needs a bit more density and a focal point (God I wish the new pinnacle design will be as fantastic as this one). btw which others from this picture are not getting built, besides the Pinnacle? And there any others under contruction besides leadenhall and fenchurch?

If only this was in the city skyline, I kinda dislike the way tall buildings are scattered around London. But then again, its where we need them, not building them altogether just to look good. :/

Is this getting constructed for the crossrail and its just an extension of the existing station?

It's just a few posters, not a refurbishment.

100 Bishopsgate is currently waiting for a pre-let. The site has been cleared, but it's on hold until a tenant is found.

Work on Lime Street Square, AKA The Scalpel is due to start any time now. Demo will take a year and construction is scheduled to start immediately afterwards as the building already has a tenant signed up.

The buildings where Heron Plaza will stand are currently being demolished.

Baltimore Tower will very much be a part of the Canary Wharf skyline.

It's a brand new station, not an extension of any existing station. There is no existing station.
