Of course we want more crossings as stated by Core Rising, however that doesn't negate the fact that overall the Thames in London is a well bridged and well tunnelled river.
It's so awesome to have you on this forum.

Some people just spout nonsense to hide their inescapable jealousy of London.

Looks like the Yanks can't keep away from London at the moment. After the recent surge of Hollywood films shot here encouraged by the governments financial incentives and tax breaks for filming in the UK.. now we have the new season of 24

Some nice shots of London's new shiny buildings in the action shots.. great publicity for the Big Smoke.

Boris floats London Housing Bank plan for big schemes

London Mayor Boris Johnson has unveiled plans for a new London Housing Bank to finance house building and help deliver thousands more low cost homes in the Capital.

The unique London Housing Bank scheme would loan up to £200m to development partners to help them speed up the building of around 3,000 homes on large scale, multi-phase schemes, which already have planning consent.

These homes would then be let to Londoners at low cost rent for up to 10 years before being sold on, with the loan repaid to City Hall.

The idea follows research conducted by City Hall that found planning consents have been granted for around 200,000 homes in London which have not yet been built.

This figure that is sometimes confused with developers land banking sites. But around three quarters of these consents are on large, multi-stage regeneration developments of more than 500 homes, which can take many years to complete.

Often this is due to the funding and sales constraints which can limit the pace of building.

Johnson, said: “We’re doing everything we can to double house building across the capital and address a 30 year failure to build enough homes for this thriving city.

“Through this exciting new fund we hope to provide thousands of brand new homes many years sooner than would otherwise be possible, and make them available to rent at more affordable, below market, rates for hardworking Londoners.”

This comes a week after the Mayor published his updated Housing Strategy setting out a long-term ambition to increase supply to at least 42,000 new homes per annum, around double what has been achieved over the last 20 years.

Of these, at least 17,000 should be affordable with 5,000 for purpose-built long-term market rent.

The Mayor is consulting agencies and organisations within the housing industry on the London Housing Bank proposals. The closing date for responses is the 21 May.

Canary Wharf will certainly be unrivaled in Europe at the current rate.

It's not just the main estate either. You have Greenwich Peninsular as well which will build up the view towards CW.

More good news on The Pinnacle.

London Big Bang Planner Sees Tower’s Revival in City Rebound

A plan to build a skyscraper near Liverpool Street railway station, slated to be the tallest in the City of London, may be revived this year as rising occupancy rates in the financial district draws investors, according to Peter Rees, the City’s former planning officer.

Work on the Pinnacle, an office tower designed to have a height of about 288 meters (945 feet), was halted in 2012 after the economic crisis roiled financial markets.

“There is a will to go forward, there is a demand for the space and there’s no difficulty at all in finding funding to build the project,” Rees said in a March 21 interview ahead of his retirement last week.

The U.K.’s improving economy encouraged companies to lease 7 million square feet of office space in the City of London in 2013, the most in 13 years. The Cheesegrater and the Walkie Talkie, skyscrapers in the district that have been under construction since 2010, have mainly attracted insurers as tenants.

The City of London’s success at winning tenants for new buildings, even as banks based in the area struggle to repair their balance sheets, underlines the district’s ability to overcome setbacks including the 2008 banking crash, Rees said.

“Each time the City seems to bounce back stronger than ever,” he said.
