Erbse doesn´t understand the capitalism...and erbse doesn´t understand the freedom of create a city. it seems, that erbse doesn´t like east asia but, in east asia, the citys looks very european with am exotic touch, with the higher grade of capitalism. The same point is about western citys. they want to have an asian exotic touch and i like that. citys will be similar around the world and some parts will demonstrate the uniqueness.

Berlin should look like Pyöngyang, only for erbse :P. Berlin looks boring...sorry..

The gherkin is 180m obviously it's not going to be prominent. You need to upscale your continental mindset, this is london

wow that's a very interesting overview in the video, it would be great if other urban master plans were presented in such an easy to digest way! A most impressive sounding project

I don't think most of us are happy with the quality of Stratford properties yet, but it has to start somewhere. Once the bulk and critical mass are there, higher values and fewer sites will probably push up design quality as well.

Interesting ariel views of Wembley. Wonder if its possible to fit a walkway through the arched truss, to enable amazing public tours, akin to walking on Sydney Harbour Bridge's arched truss?

Strata - complete
One the Elephant - T/O
Highpoint (formerly 360) - u/c
Two fifty one (formerly Eileen House) - u/c
Elephant Park - range of buildings/heights, iirc I think probably two buildings will count as 'towers' in my eyes, maybe more - u/c (though not the towers)
Skipton House - planning, do you count it as 1 or 2
+
Ministry of sound site - potentially 2, this is dead/quiet atm though iirc
Peadbody triangle site - ditto?
Shopping centre - tba, i think probably not 'tower' height though
89 (?) Newington Causeway - ditto

so depending on exactly what height threshold to define "tower", and what threshold of 'serious proposal' you use to define "planned" (as opposed to emptily speculated), somewhere between 6 and 12 I guess

Like the Skipton House development... reminiscent of Nova Victoria. This kind of density is what's needed to establish E&C as a solid cluster.
