Not really. London never rivalled NY. There were two years when its IPO volume surpassed NY's and suddenly Brits called it the financial capital, despite the fact that NY had way more M&A, bond issues, hedge funds, private equity firms, etc.

Warsaw has surpassed London in IPOs in the past two years, but no one says that Warsaw is a more important financial center.

Moreover, the EU regulations will make Paris and Frankfurt the financial capitals of the EU.

Anyway, 20 Fenchurch is great.

Dude, I never said one was better than the other, only that in at least some cases they are considered similar, and actually the 2011 Global Financial Centres Index puts London at the top and New York second. This Wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Financial_centre) shows that in the past few years, three out of four of those organisations put London above New York.

You may say that's unscientific, or it doesn't mean anything, but all I'm saying is that some people, some of the time do consider the cities similar. Why are you fighting this idea? I couldn't care less if New York is the more important city, but some have called London more important.

Yeah I know there was not much money, but why can't they either build it or not build it!

It seems London is one of the few places that seems to primarily build core first. Quite interesting stuff.

From the South Bank it certainly doesn't go unnoticed now.
