I know. Very clever SE9.

Subtle.. I doubt he even noticed. My original point stands.

Just zoom in and compare the data.

Ehem I edited my post, because in the statistics, we're talking about regions not cities, but some of you didn't understand it (exemple: SE9).
As he said, let keep this thread about London.
By the way, great job SE9, and beautiful projects for the lovely city of London.

SE9 - In your list of high rise projects (much appreciated) a few pages back you had the South Bank Tower at a heiaght of 127m, that was the original 6 story extension. The recent planning approval of 11 floors brings it to 150m now, I hope this helps
