It's shocking to think that those pics are of the south side of the river.

It's a shame that the newfoundland tower has been butchered by the good old value engineering.

London's development really starts to resemble the patterns known from some developing countries.
It's all like a megacity jungle, with few recognizable planned structures whatsoever.
Exciting on the one hand, sort of worrying on the other.

Most of the developments are quite amazing and of great quality, for example seeing progress on The Scalpel is always delightful.

I like most of the buildings going up. There are the odd few I don't like. One I really don't is the one at the other side of the road from the ritz, but not heard any news on that one and the building it's replacing is just as ugly.

Of course everything actually is planned. However skyscrapers and other buildings are just popping up all over the place without regards to how it will look in the end, so that it's slowly starting to resemble the unplanned (extremely ugly) skyscraper forests of cities like Sao Paulo or Shanghai or Belo Horizonte. Of course it's actually nowhere near that bit it is going in that direction. I'd like it if the London authorities could come up with a devolopement plan, that would make sure most new highrises and skyscrapers are built relatively close together to form a cluster instead of just randomly going up everywhere.

I think you, and others, need to stop judging London from a few photographs on a computer monitor.

If you knew anything about London you'll know there are only about 4 or 5, relatively small, parts of London that are building anything over 100m in height, and all those areas are separated by at least a two or three kilometres.

London skyline shots can look particularly chaotic from some angles because of the distorting perspective effect caused by the path of the River Thames, especially when looking from the East & West.

Viewed from the North & the South, where the meandering path of the Thames is negated, the London skyline looks pretty normal with no sign of the chaos you claim.

Go-ahead to turn iconic Waterloo terminal into shopping mall



Plans to revitalise the iconic Eurostar terminal at Waterloo in London with a three level shopping complex have got the green light.

London & Continental Railways and Network Rail are planning to build over 130,000 sq ft of retail space in levels below the former Waterloo international terminal station platforms.

The scheme is aimed to bring the station’s shopping offer up to the standard set by Birmingham New Street and St Pancras International.

Plans also include dramatically improving the public realm fronting Cab Road and improved linkages to Leake Street and Lower Marsh, acting as a retail draw for the redevelopment of the nearby Shell Centre.

The two-year reconstruction plan is expected to cost around £60m, excluding shop fit-out.

The major retail plan forms part of the £800m remodelling of Waterloo, which includes bringing five former Eurostar platforms into use for regular commuter services by Network Rail.

Skanska is carrying out the major infrastructure works including lengthening existing local service platforms and reopening the former Eurostar platforms.

The skyscrapers on the previous page are all being built in Canary Wharf, the City of London, the South Bank and Elephant & Castle. Places demarcated for tall buildings.

The London Model is a scale model of much of inner London, including approved, under construction and completed towers. It's perhaps the best demonstration that, as DeFiBkIlLeR said, there are only a handful of places in London that host skyscrapers.
