people saying things like "it should be twice as tall" etc should realise that there are complexities of the wharf location due to soil etc, and that with a royal thanks to the crappy City Airport, flight paths limit building height to a stupid degree (i.e. roughly no higher than 1 canada square - which was originally intended to be 4 - 10 stories higher).
+ its hard to forget, but the councils, even at the wharf, tend to be ass's - basically, it ain't that simple, specially if your just looking for a quick buck.

I am just curious what all the other plots are round Peninsula? I see lots of cranes but i dont know exact the names of the towers.






One thing is for sure, it is a breadtaking transformation for the London skyline. When it will all be finished it will look like little Manhatten .

taken over the past couple of weeks - almost externally complete we are all waiting for the night lighting scheme which is going to be a little Deco / Miami esque by all accounts
