That is one very nice aspect to London's skyline. There are separate small clusters instead of a huge gathering of tall buildings. Hopefully, London will maintain that way of growing, and preserve all of their structurally sound historic buildings and historic districts as much as possible.

I'd like to see a few more talls clustered around the Shard, but maybe only 4-6.

There are 3 skyscrapers planned around the Shard. If those are built, together with the new skyscrapers in the City and (hopefully) a few more in Canary Wharf, there should be 3 pretty nice and balanced clusters (and with different sizes).
