If you're talking about skyscrapers, then yes.

But if you include lowrise projects and transport/infrastructure projects, then London has absolutely masses of stuff being built (including, for example, the world's largest football stadium). There are cranes all over the city right now.

Anyway it doesant matter how many times I see this view, im always amazed, its so beautiful, so dynamic. Is the way St Pauls so brilliantly lines up with T42 and swiss re etc.
This view, you mean:





Definitely the best view in London. As Sharon Osborne would say: "Faaaabulous!"

The same view in 2012 - I know this has been shown dozens of times before, but I just can't get over how dramatic and stylish it will look:

I doubt it will ever look like that, new proposals are sure to come and a bunch of those towers will be either cancelled or modified.

But all in all, it is still promising

"A bunch" will be cancelled or modified? We're talking about 5 proposals here, only one of which is uncertain:

Bishopsgate Tower - expected to be approved in a few months. The design has already been modified to satisfy the CAA.

Heron Tower - if you saw my other thread recently, you'll know this tower has a 100% chance of going ahead now... and with a height increase too!

122 Leadenhall - this is being built by British Land, who are without doubt the most committed, profitable and reliable developers in London. I would be willing to bet my entire life savings on this tower going ahead. There's simply no doubt whatsoever it will be built.

Minerva - The only one of the City proposals which is uncertain.

51 Lime Street - already under construction!!!

"...More jobs in the City than during dotcom boom; the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) says that the number of “City-type” jobs, in financial and professional services rose by 11,600 last year to reach 327,600 - beating the record established at the height of the dotcom boom. The CEBR also forecasts that the number of jobs will increase this year and next. Jonathan Said of CEBR says, “The City has continued to strengthen its position as the home for European merger and acquisition activity”. The big growth areas in City jobs are in investment banking as well as equities and bonds, professional services and corporate finance."

"...London has the most expensive flats in the world; according to research by Knight Frank prime new-build flats in London are selling for the highest price per square foot in the world. They estimate that new-build or refurbished flats in good locations sell for £1,744 per sq ft in London - £200 per sq ft more than the second most expensive location, Monaco and 70 per cent more expensive than New York..."

The uncertainty around Minerva may be a good thing. If cancelled, the huge amount of office it contain would fill the equivalent of 2-3 slim towers (or groundsrapers...)

I think this is pretty likely now. Minerva are looking for developers to build this tower with, providing they get someone withoney (Land secs, British Land etc...) Then this could be U/C in 2008/2009. If they DO get someone like that or wit that much money there is a posibility they could build it speculatively, and it could start (IMO, sorry if I'm wrong) in 2007
