It'd have fit much better in Canary Wharf, honestly.

It says in the articles that it will be complete by 2019, does that mean that both the towers or just the one that is getting launched this week ?.

Although the east tower (55 floors) has marketing docs on thier website , I would think the east tower is being sold first and then the 50fl west tower after that. I doubt works would start until 2016.

If you don't like this building it's a strange thing to say - perhaps you don't know London - but this is in a prime location - in about as visible a spot as you can imagine.

Raising the Roof - London (Residential)

http://residential.jll.co.uk/new-res...paign=Research

Key facts -

Currently 39 residential towers above 40 stories approved
30,700 units currently under construction - rise of 18% from last year
Currently a lull in development proposals (due to May's general election) 12% decline in inner core, 29% drop in outer core.
Now starting to pick up again
House prices are still rising. 1.4% this year currently in main areas, outer core higher growth.
Development pipeline down a 3rd from 2014 due to election with just 5,400 submitted.
Total number of units in planning system has fallen for the first time in 4 years.
Currently 50 buildings over 25 storeys under construction. Another 87 in the pipeline.
Current pipeline dictates 44 buildings will be over 150m in London.
If no city built another tower, from being outside the top 100 global highrise cities. London would move up to 17th for number of towers above 150m and 14th in number of residential towers above 150m.

Unsubstantiated talk. CWG website currently states that it'll complete in 2017.

I always think these two buildings are too thin to overcome the strong wind...

I know London very well, I've been there multiple times and I still don't like the tower. I love that city, and in my honest opinion, it's such a shame that many ugly tall towers are being built everywhere in London, destroying the essence of the city. The London I used to love and that I still love, is turning into another city that doesn't attract me as it used to.

Just my opinion, beauty is in the eye of the beholder anyways.

Many of Londons soon to be skyscrapers are distinctive are instantly recognisable such as One Blackfriars , One Wood Wharf and Manhattan Loft Gardens.

Londons towers are of a better quality than those in continental Europe. The best towers in paris, for instance, wouldn't even make it into Londons top ten.

can we please stop this nonsense and comparing constantly? "The best towers in Paris wouldn't make it into the top ten". You certainly aren't an expert on any of this. You also need to realize that LA DÉFENSE has skyscrapers built 40 years before any such thing existed in the UK!
