Rubbish

This is one scheme which is less than 1/4 built and how dare you disregard all the nermous culture and entertainment venues that line the Southbank to say nothing of bankside.

Besides that yes than the Southbank is a misley inter city backwater.

He said Southbank Place, not Southbank in general - not capitalised "place" though so prob your eye skipped over it!

Very interesting little read in The Guardian yesterday. Imagine having a monorail going through Regent's St. and London's tallest building being over 100 years old!

Thankfully some of these projects were never built, but some I feel would have been a good addition to London. Take a read and see what you think.


Personally I think it's a shame this tower doesn't exist:






What's worth considering from this article are the impractical projects that were fortunately not built.

What are your opinion's on what's being built right now? Is London losing it's identity or building on-top of a great one? Finally, do you think future generations will write about how we got it right/wrong in regards to developments in London?
Britannia triumphant would have been spectacular

Building on top!

Every generation will have instances that those in future will deem right or wrong, but the city mustn't remain static.
