Similar twin towers are being built in Riga too. 130m tall.

London is so lucky right now, this website has a great archive and looking back at ten year old threads, you really notice the difference, when compared to other eu cities we are in a great period. It's little things that that gets noticed, for instance there could be apathy building up among some. in frankfurt or paris they dont have as much tower construction going on, so to them a 70m or 80m midrise going up is a big deal, and they will open a thread for it on international section. In London we are spoilt, we have so many towers going up that we only open threads for the big ones, we have something like over sixty 50m-100m towers going up, but we never open threads for them on the international section because we consider them not worth the effort, even some 100m+ towers under construction in London don't have threads on the international section, it really brings it home how lucky london is when you see other eu cities having much less and having to get by opening threads for 70m towers, so long may our London boom continue, and I hope we don't get too apathetic and take it for granted

You've left us hanging in suspense.....

You think it would be what?!!
lol are you being sarcastic ? I think it would be great! How do you think London is going to overcome this housing crisis? It would be interesting if we could see NYC style density between canary wharf and the city.

I prefer the two clusters to remain separate, but I want and expect both to have many additions. Especially CW, because the city will have to stop building skyscrapers inevitably. That being said though, I expect emerging clusters such as Nine Elms, or Elephant and Castle to end up way bigger than the city in the future.

I believe that the final design will be slightly altered from above.

If wood wharf kicks off canary wharf and the immediate area could have over 10 towers 100m+ u/c soon and potentially 3 or maybe 4 above 200m

Why would you think I was being sarcastic?

I was genuinely interested to know what you think!

Personally, as I said, I don't want this city to become just another faceless sea of skyscrapers. It just wouldn't be London.

I like our separate clusters. In time, each of them will be a bit bigger. And each will have greater density. That's all that's needed.

Quite the City of London and it's new towers are quite well defined on the skyline giving it individuality which is what the City is: afterall it is a city in a city with some rather unique traditions.

One thing I like about skyline images of London: while you have the existing structures both old and new there's always something else going up ever evolving the famous skyline.

lol if your genuinely interested in my opinion I appreciate that a lot . My experience on this forum is that if your but somewhat critical of London, people on here start getting very defensive. Ya I understand what your saying about the different clusters however many areas in between canary wharf and the city especially along the dlr line could do with regeneration its not as if what's standing between the two clusters has the charm and character of the west end (not to say that all of it is like that).

A couple of amazing shots from @MPSinthesky (the first made an appearance on the BBC news website).

You do realise that there's a world of different from the west end and the east end don't you?! The west end is effectively central London the heart of all the touristy stuff (theatres, shops etc.) whereas the east end has traditionally been more industrial and 'working class' so obviously it won't be as appealing to a tourist.
