All of the towers which i updated on Saturday have thier own threads and so reposting those same photos to one thread would not make much sense.

Hopefully you have all managed to make it through that list. I wanted to conduct a snapshot of all the projects currently live in London today. As you can see, it's rather long and pleasingly varied. London is going through a massive construction boom right now, and I don't think that is conveyed unless all the U/C projects are brought together in one place.

Believe it or not, that list isn't even close to complete. There are hundreds of smaller projects, and even quite a few large projects which I haven't included. Renders aren't particularly easy to find if projects don't get covered by the London forum, soI haven't included a lot of what is going on in Greenwich, Oxford Street, Wembley ect. for that reason. Anyway, I hope you all get as much of a kick out of those renders, as I did making the list.

Outstanding work, Core Rising. Many thanks for that.

Really shows how much is going on in London currently and how the skyline is going to change within the next five years.

I honestly feel that London is gradually losing it's unique heritage and culture as a result of many of these monolithic buildings. It now resembles Dubai far more than anything I would traditionally affiliate with London. I know this is a skyscraper forum, and a place where they are meant to be appreciated, but for me - they have destroyed this city. It's callous that so many of these have been built with absolute-total disregard for any of London's history or customs. It was once among the most beautiful cities in the world, now it's been degraded and violated to a point where I could describe it only as a pathetic, amateurish mess.

Have you actually visited the city the past years? I can't say that the skyscrapers have done any real harm to the city as it was. Obviously there'll be some projects that could be considered a bit out of place, but a "pathetic, amateurish mess"? Come on.

And thanks for the updates, SE9, Core Rising and others.

In 100 years time one of these buildings could get knocked down and they will be a person like you saying the same thing in response.

Very few old buildings of architectural merit are destroyed to make way for the projects listed above. Historic London is heavily protected, and there's an uproar when historic buildings are threatened. (Witness recent successful campaign against King's College's plan to demolish Victorian buildings for nondescript replacement.) That's not to say that no old buildings are ever destroyed, but 99% of what you see on here replaces nothing of architectural merit.
