I hope, the canary wharf will be colourfull in the night. London looks to dark. That looks not nice. More colours, London. More LED Architecture.

I like that wood wharf looks to be greener at the bottom. I looked at City of London where it's towers were on Google Street View and the area looks like it could look a'lot better

I wouldn't say it's dark at all.

At no point in London do you ever feel the same kind of sardine-can mentality that you do in, say, Seoul or Tokyo. It's relatively spacious, and certainly not buckling under the pressure of an extra few million people. There's a whole lot of sky to expand into.

Population growth is always used to scaremonger, because the implicit fear is that population growth comes solely from immigration. So saying London is expected to grow by two or three or however many million people, it's just a way to imply there will be millions more immigrants coming to the city. Why that's a bad thing? I don't know. I can only imagine the people who are afraid of immigrants simply don't live in London in the first place. You can't swing a cat in London without hitting another culture. It's one of the best reasons to live there.

As Seoulite I am. I agree with you Seoul and Tokyo is a city sardine can.

But I little bit skeptical about London expand through horizontal and growth population by accept immigrant.
Because I heard that not only london but also whole western europe suffer by immigrant problem. especially Islamic.

This is not offenses means and I respect all religion. But If they want to become some city's citizens then first he/she must adapting own personal culture and mind. especially religion and ethic aspect. Unless they don't deserved to live in there as citizens.
For the sake of prosperity a City's future a consist citizens's Quality is very important. Unless city's tradition and COLOR overwhelm by immigrant.

Such like a case ecosystem disturb species.

In short London preserved she's own mixed color as world capital meanwhile must control immigrant who didn't respect london's identity.

Your post may receive a lot of negative responses, but you're entitled to your opinion and it can't be denied that London has a huge immigrant population, whether you see that as a problem is down to your own personal point of view and experience I guess.

The general experience of seeing other people about is a healthy situation, vast swathes of London is pretty provincial where the only crowd experience is road traffic. There are plenty of European cities far more densely populated than that situation and with larger living space too. Tokyo only has small living spaces due to an overtly capitalist economy coupled with a lack of legislation.

And the point about infrastructure is bizarre; a growing city builds the infrastructure why would a declining city do that? Any lag is just political inability which is soon overcome by necessity. Crossrail 1 is a good example. Clue when was that proposed and then finally built?
The point about infrastructure is that it lags behind, so if we continue to increase the population at the rate we are does not make sense to me. You probably will have noticed that public spending is not available in the same amounts as it was. More cuts will be on the way no matter who gets in. Housing, hospitals, schools, roads are all under funded as it is.

"The general experience of seeing other people about is a healthy situation" is purely subjective. Some people prefer isolation, others the hustle and bustle of living on top of one another. I suspect most would settle for something in between - which is neither akin to living in Northern Canada or the centre of Tokyo.

I really can't understand people's mindset who advocate we continue to rapidly increase the population. Please tell me why you think this is beneficial? Is it really down to the fact that we might build lots more pretty, tall skyscrapers...

London's international nature is a major contributing factor to its success. Its cosmopolitan, cohesive nature is often considered the city's best attribute. The people most supportive of this tend to be Londoners themselves. Those most vocal against it tend not to even live here.

Are Tokyo and Seoul this bad in terms of density? I guess London is still pretty spacious. More than half of it is very low-density housing and a lot of open space.

The view from City A.M:


8.6m Londoners is a sign of the capital’s success: It’s now time to plan for 10m
City A.M.
2015
Quote:
Any day now, the glitter cannons will be fired and the corks popped as London reaches a new milestone, surpassing its 1939 population peak of 8.6m.

This isn’t just a number, it’s a validation of London’s success as the world’s business and talent hub, as well as a centre for creativity and innovation.

But even as this record is being broken, it’s crucial to remember that growth will not stop here. While 8.6m people calling themselves Londoners might sound impressive, the city’s population is slated to hit 10m by 2036.

We need to be asking urgent questions about how we plan for this growth. Last night, London First launched a major new report aimed at answering just such questions.

Yes I know that, but with the Heathrow expansion and Crossrail/HS2 etc…

I thought its days were numbered especially as it is sitting on prime development land.

In the short to medium term it'll be here, in the longer term I expect it to close.

I think inno4321 is basing his view on that in London British born citzens are in the minority, which is true. Which is why people out side of London see it as a problem that's needs tackling. I take the view that what needs tackling is the supply and demand problem ie housing and infrastructure.
