No city on Earth does modern 5-20 storey buildings better than London.

Yeah, it's way behind on supertalls and other kinds of stuff. But that mid-high-rise London style is just simply beyond anywhere else in terms of design.

Shame it's all so expensive.

One of the mains reasons we barely have skyscrapers in London is because we have strong opposition from groups who want to protect Londons history, heritage and culture. They thing London should be kept as one big open museum, no joking, that's first on their agenda, livability is like second or third or even last. That's why we've got to compromise.

What is this other kind of stuff ?. On supertalls London isn't far behind, it's not and will never be part of that race.

yeah one, the shard. I just don't see 'supertalls' being a regular occurrence in London but builds at around size of the leadenhall are more likely.

The roof terrace / park on the residentials next to Battersea is gonna be sweet! Although I suppose it's going to be reserved for residents only..
