Really cracking on now looks great, londons gonna look great when this the pinnicle and the leadenhall building's are complete, are there any plans for any more skyscrapers around the shard though ?? ?? i think it could do with some smaller buildings around it to compliment it.

Any forumers with BBC coverage should watch a little of the 'Trooping of the Colour' (Queen's Birthday Parade) as it has just shown a shot of Horse Guard's Parade with the London Eye in the more immediate background, and the Shard (in the distance) looking ridiculously high!!! It is an awesome sight!

It's great they are showing it. Anyway, it's hard to show such a central location and avoid the Shard.

I changed my opinion about building shorter skyscrapers around the Shard. Find somewhere else for them (make CW denser).

I second that, i find Canary Wharf sucks in terms of quantity and height. That's why i said that they should build future skyscrapers in limited/specific location at The City or Canary Wharf. By putting many highrises (randomly) all over the city will not make London the best skyline in Europe.

I don't think CW sucks in any particular way but more skyscrapers would be welcomed. There was a recent application for a new development in Cuba Street this week.

Really cool shots.
