Congratulations on your blog.

This is what London does best in the world.

The redbrick buildings are definitely not Georgian, late Victorian or more likely Edwardian

I wasn't really that keen on this tower at first...but I think it suits London well and will look better with The Pinnacle and Leadenhall in the skyline too.

McDermott promotes two in UK while preparing move to City's most expensive building

US outfit McDermott Will & Emery has made up two partners in London ahead of the firm’s relocation to the 46-story Heron Tower, the City’s tallest building.

The firm has been signed up as anchor tenant for the new London landmark and will take up 25,000 sq ft of office space when it makes the move in February. It will pay rent of £55 per sq ft, which is reportedly the highest level of rent paid in the City since the recession, and will occupy the eighth and ninth floors.

The firm’s new London partners are employment associate Sharon Tan and tax associate James Ross. The firm has made three other promotions: Philip Werner Brussels, competition), Sebastian von Lossow, (Dusseldorf, corporate), and Vincent Schroder (Munich, IP). The promotions will be effective from 1 January.

Commenting on the promotions, Europe head Hugh Nineham said: “Promoting these five excellent lawyers is part of the continued organic growth of our European business. They’ll all strengthen our high level cross-border capabilities in key practice areas for the firm. We’re very pleased to welcome them to the partnership.”

London is a nice city I visited it on last Christmas. Now again I want to be there but it not be possible for us. But when I visited there, I liked it very much and a tower whose picture was given above is so pretty. Just everybody can see in this tower in picture it looks like a same in real and it create an attraction of viewer to come over there.
