Been looking through the thread guys as there was a diagramatic pic somewhere but I can't find it and after half an hour I'm bored; what's the floor to ceiling height of each floor?

I've got to agree that the view from that location is spectacular but I'll get it costs a fortune to live in a place that has that view.

Not that much, a friend of mine lives there and his house isn't expensive by London standards at all and in my experience some of the best views of London are from some of the poorest areas.

Anyone looking for a great view (I'll take it if no-one else does but I'm in Bristol at the moment) get down to Epsom racecourse and there's a ridge; you can see planes touching down to heathrow in the west, a fair chunk of the surrey suburbs, the whole of London with the Wembley arch and hills towards welwyn to the north and then Canary Wharf in the east and east London - reminds me of LA and it's an absolutely awesome view. Whether a camera will capture enough detail that the eye sees i don't know but I'll find out and post here.

29 Jan from London Bridge. It must be 900 feet high, dominates London skyline.

It truly is a remarkable sight!
What are the chances of London being allowed to build another 300m+ tower in the near future, what with airport and sightline height restrictions having to be strictly followed?

Absolutely none, so we better appreciate this! Unless City Airport or until or IF Heathrow moves in decades from now (which I admit depends on where you want to build the skyscraper in question) no more will be built any taller, period. (I say that with a heavy heart!)

Absolutely amazing view. I love how the middle foreground shows a rural type setting, with a 1960's style to the right, and a thoroughly modern London in the background

...and the Pinnacle (Bishopsgate Tower) was originally proposed at 307 metres (1,007 ft), but scaled down to 288 metres (945 ft) following concerns from the Civil Aviation Authority.

I don't think so. Shard will high 310m (will be lonely) and it will not clash with planes, and Pinnacle will be in the City with other skyscrapers.

That is why the argument of planes hitting the pinnacle don't make sense to me.
I thought the airports were all outside the city of London, far away from these towers?
