It seems as if substantial towers are starting to rise everywhere and this is only going to increase over the next 18 months.

It's going to be quite spectacular seeing all these rise, the skyline is going to change dramatically in this time period alone.

If this other rumoured "supertall" is something special then London really would start competing with some of the more established highrise cities excluding the obvious especially with it's current growth in almost every area of the city.

If the city links up with the broadgate area and goodsyards and continues to throw up substantial towers across the other side of the river by the Shard they skyline is going to become very, very impressive.

The more that keep breaking ground over the next year or so should really nail London's position as Europe's highrise capital which i'm sure nobody would've dreamt off 25 years ago.

The increase in property prices in London is unsustainable. It won't long until there is another property crash , i've pencilled it in for 2016/7. Which may mean that some of these highrises might not even get built , developers should look to start work as soon as possible if they want to avoid starting work before financial crisis.

The INCREASE in property prices at it's current growth is unsustainable I agree, however, that does not mean there will not be growth in the market. London is effectively recession proof to a degree. HS2 has made Birmingham effectively recession proof for the next 10-15 years also. However, the bubble can burst but two cities in the world AKA London and New York rarely feel the pinch like other world cities during troublesome economic times. London's real estate is so highly regarded and valued that it's set in stone.

Also ... I assume your calculations relate to previous recessions. Current trends and figures suggest we've got another half a decade at least before severe economic performances trigger anything as bad as the previous recession.

Any other developed city = BOOM & BUST
London and NYC = BOOM & BOOM

Sure less will be built but percentage wise, these two will actually improve over other similar sized cities in the same situation due to reputation and the foundations (excuse the pun) they've built over the last 200 years.

I would argue that HS2 will suck further economic activity from Birmingham and other northern cities to London. Because it reduces journey times and firms will close their offices and move south in order to reduce operational costs. It might just be that people will buy flats in Birmingham where house prices are much less than there london equivalents and then benefit from the reduced commuting times to Euston an interchange at OOC will further exacerbate this.

Anyway back to your original point , this forthcoming recession will be the mother of all crashes. Deutsche Bank has around Deutsche Bank has a reported $73 trillion derivatives book. If we assume that ratio of interest rate derivatives is likely similar to JP Morgan’s, it means that DB’s potential derivatives exposure to interest rates is around $46 trillion. When Greece exits the Euro why is effectively why Syriza is in political office , an Grexit will place pressures on French and German banks as this debt will have to be written off also known as an haircut. In perspective Lehman Brothers had $639 billion in assets and $619 billion in debt, Lehman's bankruptcy filing was the largest in history.

If there's to be a spectacular financial/property crash in 2016 as you predict, then developers wouldn't be going ahead with much of these projects now.

London prices actually have been falling for the last 6-8 months with some central areas loosing as much as 20% so I wouldn't worry about any crash as yet. Demand still way outstrips the supply.

I shudder to think what your reaction would have been when the Victorians demolished swathes for Aldwych and Kingsway.
