Aldgate is becoming considerably more dense with theses high-rises. Is the area completely covered by sight lines, or is there a potential site for something taller?

Greater Aldgate from Commercial Road to Mitre Square suddenly seems to be sprouting. In a mid-sized city it alone might stand as a central mid-rise cluster.

You're opening up fronts where there are none. That's inconsiderate and irrational.

We haven't come across people who condemn development in general (well I haven't), while there are people who criticise various specific developments, and rightfully so. London developers are advised well to pick good and sustainable designs and concepts, real estate is a long term investment.

Nothing inconsiderate about my post.

The irrationality was displayed by the forumer criticising a proposed development with sweeping, factless statements. The same cut & paste arguments used against proposed developments here, wherever they occur.

For instance, why criticise the proposal for being 'disproportionate' when it's noticeably smaller than the neighbouring block. It's like the opponents to the Blossom Street scheme complaining that it's 'out of scale' for the area, wilfully ignoring the neighbouring tower/tower sites.

I agree with you when it comes to arguments about the block being "disproportionate".

You're missing my point however. In stating that there's an "anti-development lobby" you're being inconsiderate, that's what I'm saying. There's no such thing from all I can say after following both the London forums and this thread for a long time.

Yes a super tall in London would be great, but unfortunately it is very difficult to do so in London because of height restrictions due to air traffic lanes, then there's the rule about not blocking views of St Paul's, and there's the annoying Guardianistas and NIMBE's that will make some huge uproar about anything that isn't in a classical style and delay the process even more, and then finally there is the fact that any super tall would look incredibly out of proportion in comparison to the rest of the City's low/mid rise skyline of only 250m or so. So unfortunately I doubt a super tall in Lobdon will ever happen for the foreseeable future.

263 new tall buildings planned for London

This figure includes 76 proposed or in the planning system, 117 with planning approval but not yet on site, and 70 under construction.
Compared to last year’s data, this shows a significant increase in the number of towers under construction, up 56% from the 45 projects contained in the 2014 survey. It shows only a small increase of 3% in the number of proposed towers (up from 72), and a 6% decrease in the number of towers with planning approval but not yet on site (down from 113).
In the last 12 months 72 towers over 20-storeys have been submitted for planning approval, 64 of which are residential. Of these, 27 (37%) have been granted planning permission, 4 (6%) have been refused, and 41 (57%) remain undecided.
