Providence Tower will have such a major impact. Can't wait for it to get seriously tall.

Yes great Photo. London...... work in progress.
What strikes you about London skyscrapers is the high quality cladding.
The pinnacle will rise in the New Year, I have no doubt about that.
Looks like Angel court re-clad has begun, scaffold appearing!!

Yes but hopefully that is the last one. London has altered enough of its old skyscrapers.

I wouldn't say that's a bad thing though! Especially when considering Angel court and South Bank tower.

I was in the process of uploading family photos to the computer and exchanging tweets, following food and Christmas television (and wisely, before drinks). Whilst I was online I thought I might as well leave a post here
