London does feel like its own state compared to the rest of the uk economically, but it is a city,an amazing city none the less, but not a country my friend.

I think he meant IF London was a country it would still be as famous as it is today.

Probably not as traditionally Britain only became as great as it did thanks to the industrial cities and ports of other cities. Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow etc. Probably why us lot have an inferiority complex with London. No one city should grow as big and as powerful as it has on such a small island and let all the others stay mediocre.

New York-based architect Rafael Viñoly is constructing 20 Fenchurch St in the City, a 160m, 36-storey tower which went through a painful gestation as its location was controversial. He went out of his way to consider how it could be designed to maintain as many views as possible. “We scooped the building out at the sides and back,” he says, “to allow views of [Sir Christopher Wren’s] St Margaret’s Church and also of the City cluster. It bends to respond to where things are and to indicate the presence of the river.” He is also working on designs for a residential tower which, when it is complete, will be one of New York’s tallest. I ask how the approach to views varies between the two cities.

“New York is much more about a panoramic view than about individual landmark buildings,” he says. “The view is the city.” In his London tower, which has become known as the “Walkie Talkie” and, slightly more endearingly, “The Pint” because of its bulbous top, Viñoly has turned things around by making a public space at the top, a sky garden which will look out onto the whole of London. “Views can be a commercial commodity or they can be a public asset,” he says.

LONDON | Thu Nov 10, 2011 9:57am

(Reuters) - Land Securities will build its London skyscraper known as the Walkie Talkie without a major letting deal and in spite of a rapidly worsening economic backdrop, Chief Executive Francis Salway said.

The UK's largest real estate investment trust by market capitalisation is developing the 38-storey scheme in London's City financial district, in a JV with Canary Wharf Group, but has no major letting to lower the scheme's financial risk.

"We are speculatively developing the building," Salway said on a conference call on Thursday. When asked by Reuters whether the company had the option to pause the scheme if the economic backdrop worsened, Salway said: "We are building the project."

Land Securities, which posted a 17 percent year-on-year rise in first-half NAV to 863 pence, previously said it would build the tower unlet, but rising fears of a euro zone breakup means financial services firms may shelve plans to move.

On Wednesday, Great Portland Estates Chief Executive Toby Courtauld said there would likely be no major pre-let deal for its 100 Bishopsgate skyscraper in the next 6-12 months. The scheme would only go ahead with a letting deal in place, he said.

Salway noted the number of inquiries by London office tenants looking for floor space had increased since the middle of the summer, a trend he labelled "counter-intuitive."

At 0948 GMT, shares in Land Securities were up 1.6 percent at 687 pence, outperforming a 0.5 percent rise in the broader index of UK property stocks .

Evolution Securities analyst Alan Carter said Land Securities' NAV growth would come solely from its development programme. "We fear demand and rental growth will remain muted for the foreseeable future."
