It's number 1 overall as a city.

Those rankings are subjective. Rankings by other entities are completely different. In terms of IPOs, M&A activity, hedge fund assets, and PE assets, it's nowhere near the top. Anyway, this is a topic for another thread.

Hopefully, more new towers will be announced for the City.

I really don't see how Seoul is ranked over Tokyo, Boston, Zurich, Geneva & Frankfurt. I actually have no clue. As RobertWalpole stated, these lists are subjective.

Don't feed him. He's obviously trolling. Mods should remove the last 7 posts including mine.

loads of towers will be built in the coming years but i doubt the city will get many of them as it does not have a lot of spaces to construct new buildings.

Pinewood Studios’ script for 15 year expansion plan



Pinewood Studios, advised by planning and urban design consultancy Turley Associates, has submitted a planning application to almost double the size of the Studios at Iver Heath, South Bucks, in response to growing international demand.

The £200M scheme will support around 8,000 UK wide jobs and has been prepared in support of Government policy to grow the UK film, TV and screen based industries.

Pinewood is an iconic brand in the film industry and a world leading studio facility. It is at the centre of the West London media cluster and home to recent productions such as Skyfall, Les Misérables and Jack Ryan.

The scheme will provide circa 100,000sq m of new build features including stages, studios, workshops, offices and external film set space together with improvements to access, car parking and circulation.

The scheme includes innovative proposals for fixed ‘streetscapes’ of typical European and US locations, which could, for example, include Paris and New York.

The Pinewood Studios Development Framework (PSDF) is a longterm plan founded upon the existing Pinewood screen media hub, which includes a multitude of skills and facilities and hundreds of millions of pounds of investment.

Over site development application submitted for Bond Street station



Crossrail and development partner Grosvenor have submitted a planning application to Westminster City Council for a major over site development (OSD) at 65 Davies Street in Mayfair.

The 65,000sq ft development will be located above the western ticket hall for Crossrail’s Bond Street station. The proposed scheme comprises six floors of office accommodation above the station, served by an entrance lobby on Davies Street.

I didn't realize that Crossrail was going to have separate ticket halls to London Underground...
is it going to be like that at every station?

Am I the only person on this thread that doesn't like the Thames garden bridge? It strikes me as a bit of chintz ... a doily of a project. It's not as though London is lacking parks and green spaces, maybe somewhere like Seoul would benefit ... or perhaps it's just an unoriginal riff on NY's High Line? Re the upkeep, maintaining such a garden doesn't strike me as being environmentally cost effective.

It seems very exposed, in a bit of bad weather the place will be battered. I can't help but feel that people will continue to use their normal parks and this project will just be used as another bridge.
Seems a bit gimmicky to me.

I'm not too fond of it either. Tall trees could spoil a nice view from Waterloo bridge. And I can't imagine the garden being anywhere near as good as the render. (as a general rule: garden renders are always so much better than the real thing) The idea I don't mind, I just don't think that area needs another bridge.

A lot of good looking projects in London, the skyline has changed a lot over the past decade

And as someone from another city with a large pyramid skyscraper, I gotta say I'm jealous of London's newer, taller, and better-looking pyramid skyscraper. The Shard is definitely one of my favorite highrises anywhere.

This list is obviously incomplete. San Francisco for example has at least 20 proposed/approved buildings of 100+ meters.
