No doubt! Wood Wharf and the tower projects along Marsh Wall will make a big impression from this viewpoint.

London is one of the richest cities in the world and is the leading financial centre along with NYC. The thing I don't get is london has a shortage of office space and scrapers that been proposed and got planning permission but the rate they're built is extremely slow and bafflingly to me.

I like the new one going up more personally but I looked at what was there before and it was a nice building there before too. But I think this new building is gorgeous.

Let's think about it... Atlanta... No history, no problem building stuff.

London, loads of history... More problems building stuff to preserve the city.

One thing about London is that it does have a lot of high risers but the difference between London and other major cities is that the towers in London are scattered all over the place, put them together and you will have a major skyline that will surly be better than Atlanta's.

There's currently over 20 towers with on-site construction activity in London over 100m. In Atlanta there's only 1.

Helps to check Emporis or the CTBUH.

Maybe I should have been a little clearer, I was meaning the city and canary wharf. Both these skylines are not even close to la defence, which is shocking.

Ny has currently 99 highrises being built with toronto having a 130. Plus look at miami practically no skyline in the early 00 ' s now look at it, canary wharf started in the 80's now compare.
