One of the best looking proposals on the boards right now. Extremely happy it was approved (although, was there really any chance it wouldn't be?).

Anyway, can't wait to see it rise.

I'd say it's a tall tower and a shorter tower!

I was gutted to see south quay plaza get such a large height reduction . I like the design and had high hopes for this reaching the 800 ft mark. I shouldn't be surprised though!

Tower hamlets is going to become one hell of an expensive place to live, I hope they don't gentrify the whole area, there's a lot of history and culture in some parts of the area, which has been bought by migration of different ethnic group to Tower Hamlets. It will be unfortunate to see the demise of this. However I must say those buildings look great. Very American like, a bit of Miami and Chicago. A question for you all, what's pushing the residential skyscraper boom in London?

Tower Hamlets is an entire borough. The skyscrapers are proposed for a section of E14, on what was derelict docklands a few decades ago. Hence why half the proposals there have the word 'Quay', 'Bay' or 'Wharf' in the name.

The near insatiable demand for London real estate is seeing these high end residential projects, lowrise and highrise, move forward at a fast rate:

Great photo. I know several that are hoping the MPS release a larger version, as they did with their fog photo last year.

If London has such overwhelming investment, why hasn't that turned into supertall or even skyscraper size buildings?

I mean, don't get me wrong, some of the world's best skyscrapers are in London. But the city doesn't have the forest of buildings effect of New York, Tokyo, or even parts of Paris.

Is there a hard ceiling on London? And if so, at what point do they remove it because of economic pressure?

London has a supertall, so far the only in the EU. A skyscraper is +150m, and there were three skyscrapers approved on one street in London last night alone.
