There is also a boom in high/midrise in London. There are over 70 towers 50-100m u/c in London now. It's good seeing all these new towers and other projects coming through and other huge multi billion pounds developments. So many more towers are to begin this and next year, as all those extra cores are rising, it's going to look amazing in a skyline photo.

^On the 7th slide, what is the building to the left of the Marriott hotel? The other side of the DLR tracks.

North Quay I think will certainly be redesigned when it come to progressing with the development, old designs that have been on hold for a long time tend to get redesigned, whether it be to accommodate the market or because the site is sold or they are just bored with the current scheme.
