Why the random cladding? I could understand it if the building was surrounded by older non-uniform buildings and it helped it blend in..

^ I don't see why updates on Crossrail, Boris buses, Heathrow terminals, and even house prices are relevent, but this is not. Airports and aircraft are a critical part of a city's transport infrastructure, and especially important for London as the world's leading aviation hub. Also, it's bad form to quote posts with images right after after their first posting. Please remove.

^ No, why would I be? Why are threads about new trains or buses relevent, but not aircraft? They're all part of a city's transport infrastructure and connectivity, and transport connectivity is the main reason cities exist and grow. Note that Heathrow, where these planes are based, is inside London's official boundary. Planes on Heathrow's approach run pass every two minutes over central London. They're visible all over the city, and are part of London's daily scenery. (Unlike the new airport proposals or the new container port, which are quite far from London, though they'll undoubtedly serve London's metropolitan market.) When Eurostar launch their new e320 trains from St Pancras, I'll probably update this thread. Will you object to that? If not, then I'm curious to discover how you draw the distinction.

I know that the core of this thread is about building developments (note that these include London's airports), but we also get articles and discussion on London's house prices, economy, foreign investment, tourism, or debates on urban density. It's all relevent imo.

Long story short: when it comes to constructing a new airport, or metroline, or anything public transport related in belongs here because it's both construction news and it's a development in London. We can probably make an exception for the new buses uses, since they are typical for London.

And btw, if you really feel the need to post about an new service to Johannesburg in the construction forum, just post the link to the article. We know what an A380 looks like.

Anyway, I don't want to be nit-picking here, and I respect the effort you make contributing to this thread. I think it's time we invent some sort of guidelines to make sure nobody gets confused about what's on-topic and what's not for every section in SSC

^ I agree that there's probably some confusion about what's relevent or not, but there's a reason this is the most popular thread in this section (Paris's higher figure is faked), and it's because discussion of London's projects ranges far beyond high-rise projects, which are adequately dealt with elsewhere.

Small pedantic note: there is no new service to Johannesburg. BA has served Joburg for decades. What's new is BA's introduction of the A380 and 787 this month. This is comparable news to the new S-Stock trains on the Tube, or the new Boris bus, both reported here without controversy or objection.

I guess the issue is that this isn't really a project at all, its just a company introducing A380's on some of it's routes and A380's are pretty common in Heathrow already. So yeah, belongs elsewhere but thanks anyway though

As for 40 Leadenhall Street (Gotham City), I love it. I think it will do the cluster as a whole a world of good. I guess the worst thing about it is that it obstructs the view of the Gerkin, but I'm still positive about it.

The City's emerging skyline is great. CW's is a horrible collection of short, fat boxes. It looks like Seattle.

Not really. The other A380s are mere visitors for which London is the far end of a spoke. BA's new birds are the first A380s to be based in London, and first 787s at Heathrow. And BA is not just any old company, it's London's only major hub operation. BA's 78x widebody orders are worth $21.1bn (!!) at catalogue prices.
