Not sure, but it is great to see a place dedicated to Mental Health being constructed.

No.

The way the London forum operates, you'll be updated immediately if and when there is any update, negating the need to periodically ask.

The City's skyline still will be tiny even when all of the proposed towers are completed, but it will be awesome.

A lot of inane imagining and 'iffing' in this part of the thread, plus annoying reposting of a render.

I think the phrase it 'small but perfectly formed' ! I adore pretty much all of the skyscrapers there ... even 20 Fenchurch Street is growing on me.

Well said. The City's skyline is like Pippa's bum, "small but perfectly formed!"

Just part of a much bigger whole

But this is just the City of London - the one square mile old "Downtown" which now forms one of London's two financial districts. On its own it already constitutes one of the greatest concentrations of office space in the World. But much of it is low-rise in developments such as Broadgate. And there is so much more to Central London - from the City through Midtown to the West End, let alone Canary Wharf. For those who say that the City skyline is "small" it is only part of a much bigger picture as any panorama taken from, say Parliament Hill shows. It will be one of at least five clusters.

And for those on this forum who claim that La Defense is Europe's biggest business district, I am afraid the City beats it by farin terms of office space and employees.

'Midtown'? I think you mean Holborn.
