I remember reading in the 90's the Canary Wharf plan was a giant financial flop. Good to see it is booming and will continue to boom.

Urgh, whats that mess between Novotel and Baltimore? Too many contrasting colours! The Novotel reminds me of a decent regional tower, maybe poorer quality than the rest of Canary Wharf especially, though i love the yellow base and looks decent in the sunshine.
