Other than the already built St George Wharf Tower, how much of it is actually likely / already approved / under construction and how much of it is just a developer's / urban planner's wet dream?

That's great.

But how much of it, do you think, is likely to happen? We've all seen, before now, grand plans that never come to fruition. Is there a chance that a lot of the high rises will be dumbed down and sized down?

the overall wider area of Vauxhall (that render), Nine Elms (US embassy), Battersea (Power Station) is abuzz with actual construction unlike say the Greenwich Peninsular and Elephant & Castle due to its proximity to Chelsea. Most of the projects shown in the renders have planning permission. We will know for sure next year!
