All these towers in Moscow will be finished by 2012 same time as the Shard???

I thought his original question was after the shard is finished... What would be the top 5 tallest building in europe?? In what place will the Shard be?

Let's hope all those ariel shots of London during 'that' wedding on Friday include footage of The Shard. Let's get this beautiful building seen by 1/3 of the Worlds population. That said, I won't be watching.

But surely this depends on the investor no? If middle eastern money wants to invest in something high profile and economics is scewed because of the hubris involved with middle eastern investors then the rules Shuttleworth states here don't apply, I would guess he is referring to UK investors and developers in such projects? Obviously it depends if it is demand led or client led too.

I'm not sure how he draws this conclusion apart from taking it from a one-dimensional angle relating to UK involvement from design to build? Thoughts anyone?
Obviously it's only the case while we're in the midst of the recession/recovery. He could have said the same thing in the early 90s. In ten years time ostentation will be back.

Having had a thought about the issue, perhaps more skyscrapers surrounding the Shard wouldn't be a good idea. It needs to really stand out. Better invest more in CW.
