I'm just not sure what order they're in yet.
The best building in CW IMO - the HSBC building, also by Foster.

@GB1: Given that the Scalpel is understood to be under construction once demo/ground prep is completed, that it has been reported today that the Pinnacle may restart construction before the end of the year, and that Deutche Bank are understood to be still in negotiation for 100 Bishopsgate, which may reach a positive conclusion - , then you and many other forumers could be sitting pretty on this balcony in the not too distant future!

I'll believe it when I see the core's rising and tenents signed not before lol. They said the pinnacle was to start this summer but now by the end of the year, just more speculation than fact imo.

6 Bevis Marks - what a success. As GB1 said... the views will be extraordinary.

The Scalpel will seriously add some charm to the skyline... it's beautiful. But we do need The Pinnacle to bring the cluster all together... the Leadenhall building is gorgeous and one of my favourite towers in terms of quality - but it's not the central point of the cluster. We NEED The Pinnacle!

London's population has crossed the 8.4 million mark, according to official population estimates released yesterday by the Office for National Statistics (ONS). The population of the city-proper has risen by over 100,000 in the past year.

This rise in population has spurred the Chancellor and Mayor to initiate large scale house building programmes, which will be covered here as they materialise. For those interested, updated population statistics for the London region:

^ So what would be considered the Metropolitan Area Population? London & the Home Counties or the South East as a whole?

I'm really not suprised the population has boomed so much either..

All depends on definition I guess.

Most countries that calculate metropolitan areas tend to be liberal with their scope, to the extent that the entirety of the South East would constitute London's metro area using their criteria.

London isn't full. I don't subscribe to that ill-thought mantra.

I apologise, SE9, but I had to give you a like (or three), thus changing your like count from the perfect number of 11,111 .
