Very happy to hear that design of the Pinnacle wont be changing. I think that building will rival The Shard it terms of impact on London architecture.

Now, we just need to get it built!

wow..... so much is happening. 25 Churchill Place looks fantastic.

But the Pinnacle news is truly the highlight of the month so far for me... brilliant news.

Once again, thanks for the fantastic updates SE9.

You think so? I think this could be a very good addition to the city, it's quite conservative but I would imagine that the finishes will be of a very high standard, being Bloomberg. And walking through the thoroughfare (second pic) could be quite impressive. And I hear the Mira's temple reconstruction will be an experience. I am quite looking forward to this one. Massive improvement to what was there.

It is well considered by most organisations and Institutes as the number one financial capital of the world, it's only rival being New York.

A large professional work force encompassing major sectors of the world economy, first class law, business, cultural, fashion, music, arts and tech.

It's geographical position helps emencily as time is set from London time, spot in the middle of New York , Hong Kong and Tokyo.

I certainly hope not.

Having separate clusters is a good thing.

I wouldn't want London to become just another city where the buildings are high rise as far as you can see. It would lose its identity.
