Great pics of Baltimore Tower.

From the south and east, it does an excellent job of filling some of the gaps in the skyline. Will be a very impressive view when all the other proposed and under construction scrapers and high rises join it. A proper skyline.

Those views will be quite a sight indeed. I'm particularly looking forward to the impact that Millharbour Village, Wood Wharf, South Quay Plaza, the Landmark Pinnacle and Newfoundland will make.

These are identical to the ones in New York City. They removed the internet surfing capabilities of the tablets after the homeless were watching porn on them.
Now they only access city information and the 311 system for reporting neighborhood issues.

Build Heathrow Runway, Then Build Even More, Say U.K. Businesses

Exporters and business leaders expressed delight at the U.K.’s decision to build a third runway at London’s Heathrow airport. They say the government now should extend capacity elsewhere too.

The expansion of Heathrow, Europe’s busiest airport, is worth 61 billion pounds ($74.5 billion) to the country’s economy, said the government.

The announcement will help support plans by U.K. airlines to invest $75 billion in more than 900 new aircraft by 2034, according to ADS Group Ltd., an aerospace industry group. Prime Minister Theresa May’s government ended years of debate with Tuesday’s decision, opting against expansion of the capital’s Gatwick airport.

The runway “will be vital to the ongoing development within our key global markets, including the U.S.A. and Asia,” said Robert Anderson, chief executive officer of whisky maker Tomatin Distillery Co., near Inverness, Scotland.

Still, Heathrow’s expansion isn’t enough to keep pace with British business needs, said Adam Marshall, director general of the British Chambers of Commerce.

The urgent need for added takeoff and landing space -- Heathrow operates at 98 percent capacity -- will grind up against planning disputes and parliamentary dissent before construction can begin. The runway will open in about nine years based on current planning, Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said.

‘Growth Aspirations’

“This cannot and must not be the only new runway to be built in Britain over the coming decades,” Marshall said in a statement. “One new runway is not enough to give the U.K. the aviation capacity it requires to trade the world successfully.

Airports like Gatwick, Birmingham, Stansted, and others with growth aspirations should also get the chance to expand and grow in the future.”

The touchscreens in London will just offer maps, directions and local services.

I was in-and-around the Southbank yesterday and it was a real pleasure seeing One Blackfriars being built. I adore the tower from ground level especially. I feel like it really brings the area together with nearby Southbank Tower, ITV Tower, and 240 Blackfriars.

Great views from The Tate Modern too.

I just hope they actually replace all those ugly plastic red-box replacements that clutter up the streets and make them look like a dump.
