Jealous of what, exactly?

I work in this country for a planning firm, I earn my bread by contributing to the development of England.

Is the Canary Wharf a bigger business district than the City of London CBD?

no, substantially smaller, although it has more highrises.

It's workforce currently stands at 110,000, but will double once Crossrail comes through in 2018.

The City financial district meanwhile employs over 300,000 financial workers alone, and 460,000 workers total. It's daytime population back in 2011 was 630,000 (so significantly higher today), or 560,000 per sq mile, so yeah, multiple times bigger.

I swung by Pinewood Film Studios yesterday (where the new Star Wars and Bond films are being made) on a work meeting.

Construction is in full swing there! The land development is huge! three new film stages being constructed, many new workshops and roads.. massive.

Couldn't take any pictures due to being with a client.

Yeah, I saw some of the guys working on the props yesterday. Although, I think principle filming is now wrapped.

Also, if you want a replica Aston Martin DB7 model from Skyfall (the scene where they shoot it up at the end).. it will cost you £35,000… they had about 30 of them in one workshop.. each one being hand crafted.

Here's the plans.

Original site in the back.. expansion in the foreground.. it is huge! Biggest film studious in Europe now. Largest in the world outside of Hollywood.

okay so to get this straight, the high rises/skyscrapers which we're going to see erected in the City in the relatively near future are Heron Plaza, 52 Lime Street and 100 Bishopsgate, right?
