Yeah I think I prefer the original version of this picture too. Some of these additions would be welcome though, but that's a bit too much. Are these random scrapers you included?

Love the density, but the buildings are so generic.

Really? I find it really classy looking.
Not really fan of a random buildings with space around them that you see quite a bit in Asia. More fan of a identity found from the buildings and some kind of coherent skyline. Prime example being NYC.

Tx Denizpolat. Perhaps a few of the towers to the west side of the cluster may not be permitted at the height shown, but those to the north and east seem to show how the City of London cluster of towers may develop in the 2020s....which is not so far away.

First i thought you were being sarcastic when you said you used paint, but then i saw that each of the added buildings are basically a montage of bits cut from the existing ones.
I personally don't like the projected skyline you created at all, but technically you pushed paint to the limits, for that big thumbs up!

Nope, because it would involve the partial demolition of Lloyds and the intrusion into several sightlines.

London's first discount outlet 'village' to open in Wembley in autumn
http://www.standard.co.uk/news/londo...n-8785447.html
Quote:
London's first designer outlet village offering discounts of up to 70 per cent on top brands is set to open this autumn near Wembley Stadium.

The London Designer Outlet will be the first centre of its kind inside the M25 with names such Superdry, Nike and LK Bennett already signed up.

The developers hope to emulate the extraordinary success of Bicester Village, which is said to have the highest sales per square foot of any shopping centre in the world and where 65 per cent of shoppers are foreign.

One Hyde Park Developer Candy Wins OK for London Mansion
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-0...n-mansion.html
Quote:
CPC Group Ltd., the developer owned by Christian Candy, won local-government approval to convert an office building in London’s Knightsbridge neighborhood into a home that’s 16 times the size of a typical U.K. residence.

CPC, which helped develop the One Hyde Park luxury apartments in Knightsbridge, can turn Rutland House into a residential property and add a basement, Westminster borough council decided yesterday. The new home will include a massage room, cinema, swimming pool and cocktail lounge, according to a filing with the borough. It was approved by a vote of 3-0.

Demand for London luxury homes outstrips boom time
http://www.propertyweek.com/news/dem...059596.article
Quote:
The demand for luxury houses in London has surpassed levels recorded before the economic crisis, according to research from the Centre for Economics and Business Research.

The research says 1,387 houses were sold last year at more than £2m, compared with 1,297 in 2011. Last year’s sales volume of £2m+ homes was also 14.5% higher than the peak level of 2007.

The CEBR said that the average price of a prime home in London reached £3.75m last year and could rise to £3.81m this year.

Mayor’s office approves £200m London energy plant
http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...-energy-plant/
Quote:
London’s mayor has given waste specialist company Viridor permission to build a £200m incinerator and waste recovery plant in south London.

The last remaining hurdle is now central Government approval before contractors Lagan and French specialist CNIM can start building the energy recovery facility at Beddington Lane in Sutton.

They will build two 106,500 tonne-a-year capacity mechanical biological treatment facilities, and one energy-from-waste plant with combined heat and power, also with a 106,500 tonne-a-year capacity.

London's largest living wall will "combat flooding"
http://www.dezeen.com/2013/08/21/lon...mbat-flooding/
Quote:
A 21 metre high living wall containing 10,000 plants and 16 tons of soil will help reduce flooding in London, according to its designer.

The huge green wall, designed by Gary Grant of Green Roof Consultancy and covering an entire facade of a hotel, covers 350 square metres - making it the largest wall of vertical plants in London.

The permanent feature is located on the exterior wall of the Rubens at the Palace hotel in Victoria. It is made from a range of different plants that are all recommended by The Royal Horticultural Society as the best pollinators to attract wildlife such as bees, butterflies and birds to the urban environment.
