London isn't lacking in any architectural style, it's just you're not looking in the right places.

Stop judging London, or any other city, on pictures you see on the internet.

man, london is a huge metropolis that has almost all the things, various architecture styles and all the nationalities from all over the world. london is not that beautiful compared to other smaller european cities on the continent but london is powerful, strong, tolerant, attractive, competitive, functional, lively, and super diverse etc. many young people from france, spain, russia, eastern european countries, india, australia, many asian countries etc see london as the land of opportunity and billionaires see london as a safe heaven to invest their money and do the businesses.

Here's some photos of Kidbrooke Village, one of Europe's largest residential construction projects (€1.2 billion). It's currently around 20% complete, photos by me:

Kidbrooke Village is one of the best recent large scale residential projects in London. Everything fits perfectly.

Norway's $815 bln oil fund buys into London property

Norway's $815 billion sovereign wealth fund purchased a 25 percent stake in Regent Street's 270,000 square feet Quadrant 3 building in London's West End from The Crown Estate for 97.5 million pounds, it said on Tuesday.

The Crown Estate retained a 75 percent interest in the property and will continue to manage the asset on behalf of the partnership, it added.

The fund, commonly known as the oil fund, aims to hold 5 percent of its portfolio in real estate over time but the level is currently around 1 percent, indicating more purchases in the near term.

George Osborne gives £30million and his seal of approval to London's Garden Bridge



London’s Garden Bridge will draw “visitors from across the globe”, George Osborne said today as he kickstarted the fundraising appeal with £30million.

The Chancellor gave the project his stamp of approval, along with enough funding to see it through the early procurement stages.

Mayor Boris Johnson is also putting in £30m from Transport for London, and £30 million has been pledged by private donors. The unique green space over the Thames is expected to cost £150 million.

Mr Osborne said: “London’s proposed Garden Bridge will bring a new kind of public space into the centre of our capital city, attracting visitors from across the globe and showcasing the best in British design, creativity and engineering. As well as encouraging other economic development, both north and south of the river, this money will help encourage private donations to fund the rest of the bridge itself.”

The Garden Bridge is intended to be London’s slowest river crossing, with pathways between shrubs and trees designed to encourage people to dawdle and chat. It will connect Temple and the South Bank.

The Mayor said: “Thomas Heatherwick’s garden bridge will provide a stunning new landmark for London, broadcasting to the world the best that our city and our country’s creative talent has to offer. It will deliver substantial practical benefits for the capital including a regenerative boost to both river banks.”

Mr Heatherwick also designed the Olympic cauldron and the new Routemaster buses. The bridge was first proposed by actress Joanna Lumley.

Lord Mervyn Davies, chairman of the Garden Bridge Trust, said of the new funding: “We are delighted with this welcome contribution which will play a significant role in turning the vision to build the country’s first garden bridge into a reality.”
