/me laughs at stupid word censor in the first post.

Approved buildings might not be a good idea for listing in some cities because in some places (namely Melbourne), developers seek approval first and then try to find tenants or sell apartments. As a result, a lot of our "approved" projects here only start construction a long time after the initial approval.

I am very tempted to do London's skyscrapers, but it is 2am here and I need some sleep, so if someone else could do it, that would be real helpful! If not, I'll probably visit the thread tomorrow (or...today as it were) and do it myself.
