Umm, as far as I'm aware he's quoting them from the London forum and NOT from this thread. Therefore I don't see him as doing anything wrong.

Woah thats some speedy construction! :O

I cant help but like the design of the Heron, i think it's much different than anything else in the City square (build or proposed). To many people it looks bland but i like it, and the spire too! it suits it perfectly

What is planned on the site with the buildings that are wrapped up?

Is that Bishopsgate?

I imagine its just a refurbishment of the existing buildings, as far as I'm aware there is no clearance scheduled for that site or proposed towers, but I know very little about whats happening in London other than the biggies so, I'm sure someone else will give you a better understanding.
