.....and will become significantly more so over the coming years if Wood Wharf and other developments proceed as planned.

Only thing is, because of London City airport, it won't get much taller.

Unless the whole Thames Estuary Hub gets the go ahead... then they could be built somewhat taller. Won't be for a while though even if it does happen, and so for now as you say we'll see it get denser but not taller.

Awesome picture of CW. The Baltimore Tower is going to be an excellent addition for the skyline - especially in the above picture of CW. I love it.

Even if the Thames Estuary project didn't happen - and I strongly believe it will, as do a lot of people - LCY isn't going to last much longer on its own merits anyway, regardless of whether a new airport takes business away.

We're already reaching a tipping point where the value of the land beneath the runway is worth more than the income from flights landing at the airport. And with a huge amount of new business going to the south west, to Battersea and the Embassy area, Heathrow is going to be taking a lot of the people that would have normally flown into LCY anyway. Crossrail and the rest of it will only deepen the issue.

If I was a betting man, I'd wager on there being 250m+ projects already in the pipeline anticipating an LCY closure in the next decade.

By the time Canary Wharf needs taller buildings, it'll have taller buildings. 10-20 years I expect.

12-20 Wyvil Road looks lovely. I'd love to see that be approved and built. Nine Elms is going to be so splendid.

The Marsh Wall Tower will be an excellent addition to CW.

^ that is one of the greatest pictures of CW I have ever seen. Brilliant.

That view will be immense once the Baltimore Tower is completed.

Doesn't need height that much - monumentality can come from the architectural design alone.
