Sometimes I just imagine myself as someone from the past, say Henry VIII coming back from the past somehow and then being told this is London. I wonder if he/they would like to stay and visit and explore or if they would immediately say they'd prefer to go back. Even a person from a 100 years ago would have a hard time recognizing this city.

The shortest and least exciting ones are rising first as is the norm for a Canary Wharf funded development.

The 200m circular tower is about a year away from beginning to rise (assuming pre build sales go well).

Watching Inside Out London.
States there are over 80 buildings over 20 stories currently being constructed, with a further 233 in planning.
Jesus Christ, that is outstanding.

Don't know if this is a bit of a troll post, but it's an important point so I'll bite anyway.

Although there are sadly some exceptions, perhaps still too many, this is overwhelmingly not the case in London. Almost all tall buildings shown here have been built either on former industrial sites, or on top of previous office buildings from the 1960s or later, themselves generally built to replace bomb sites from the war.

It's helped by the fact that many of the new types of office tenants for example, prefer older industrial buildings for the character they give. This desire has I guess found part expression in the New London Vernacular look which has brick and industrial expressed steel in proportions similar to old warehouses.

So, the anodyne international banks still go to the anodyne Canary Wharf, whilst all the cool kids go for re-purposed powerstation, railyards and warehouses. There are some great examples of quality refurbishments and adaptations in this thread, including the post just above - not just towers. So, although you can always find the exception, and vigilance is always important, there are reasons to be cheerful.

Edit:

To flesh this out a bit, and because who doesn't like stats!... there are just under 11,000 Listed (protected) buildings in London, hundreds of Conservation Areas including 26 in the square mile of the City of London itself, 4 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, 13 Protected viewing corridors within the London View Management Framework, along with many other statutory viewing points, and lord knows how many archaeological remains, local pressure groups, Green Belt Land, Sites of Special Scientific Interest (Ecological sites) etc. etc.

None of these are guarantees, but it's by no means a pushover to get these larger schemes onto site in the first place.

Telford Homes swoops on East London site for £95m scheme

Telford Homes has paid £30m for a development site in East Londonís Bethnal Green for a major new residential scheme.

The former London Electricity Board HQ development site is located on Cambridge Heath Road in the Borough of Tower Hamlets.

Jon Di-Stefano, chief executive of Telford Homes, said that subject to planning consent the firm would put contractors to work on site in 2018 with completion anticipated in 2021.

The 0.94 acre site located near Bethnal Green Underground station and the nearby Whitechapel Crossrail station will deliver much needed new open market and affordable homes along with an element of commercial space.

He said the expected gross development value of the scheme would be around £95m.

Di-Stefano said: ďThis development fits perfectly with our strategy of developing sites in non-prime London locations where there is a fundamental lack of supply of new homes compared to significant demand from prospective owners and tenants.
