Don't say that i'm pretty sure thats what he wanted to do anyway

Lets get back on topic and forget about this weasel.

Any idea when we will get some more detailed renderings, or maybe when a proper proposal will be submitted

I wouldn't personally bet on 20 Fenchurch Street but the others are safe enough I'd say. 2 are actually on site are they not, and you haven't included Willis either (which ain't that tall but has a big impact on the skyline)

Oh and....

Anyway, let the towers do the talking. They're coming, and the leeeeeennnnghthy process that's so frustrating for us all is also whats ensuring they're such high quality.

HOW and WHY gave to London the title of greatest city of earth?

You may not agree that London is #1, but it's certainly regarded by the vast majority of people as one of the "Big Four" cities along with New York, Tokyo and Paris.

And in certain specific areas, London actually does claim the #1 spot - e.g. it leads in financial services, as well as being the world's busiest and most connected airport hub, and the city where most languages are spoken, plus it's arguably the world's sporting capital. London also has more parks and green spaces than any other city of its size.

But anyway, I'm not going to start a City vs City argument here...
