The Shard is a beacon of light at night. They should put a laser on the top when it's finished.

London needs more supertalls, not too much groundscrapers all over the city. You Londoners should boycott about it

It's unrealistic to expect skyscrapers getting built everywhere in London, it isn't a boom city in Asia.

Why is that any time a skyscraper is being built in Europe somebody immediately starts to claim that it's built on a march or an unstable soil?

Parts of London used to marsh land. Take the district of Suffolk for example. Used to be a marshy islands but the Romans came, built the first bridge to span the Thames and the capital was born. Only south of the river was marsh land.
