King's Cross looks great. The intermix of materials is really nicely done.

A couple of new projects for Marsh Wall near Canary Wharf.

The first is 50 Marsh Wall. Three towers, one of 60 floors and two of 25 floors, up to about 190m.

CW has so much potential, want to see how it'll be like in 20, 30 years time.

Too right.

I think the cluster has now reached critical mass and sprawl with Baltimore Wharf. From this point on, comparisons with Manhattan don't seem too outlandish to me.

I have to disagree. Comparisons with Manhattan are still outlandish.

However, comparisons with other major American cities (Chicago excepted) aren't outlandish.

And that represents considerable progress.

When you start getting 190m towers in a cluster that hardly stand out that's when you know you've got great density and hopefully CW will be like that soon.

If the peninsular carries on, with the spread of Wood Wharf and across to Baltimore, etc than CW will have a waterfront skyline to match some of the best.

It's exciting times for that part of the city for sure.

I think you underestimate just how large Manhattan is.



...And that's just Midtown alone.
