For what is one of the World's most important cities, London has some of the poorest skyscrapers, but London Bridge Tower is about to change all that!!

Nonsense.

London certainly doesn't have as many skyscrapers as other similar sized cities in America and Asia but the ones it does have are of the highest quality, in building materials and build quality.

Never been a fan of this building, but I've been following it since floor #1 and it's turning out great. A bit lonely though.

I've never seen it as lonely or even out of place. Maybe if it was being built on the site of 20Fc, then it would out of place. But as it is, the position is perfect.

The Strata on the other hand, now that's lonely.

They are just adding plant and the building maintenance units to the top, once done they can continue with the next floor.

Yes, they're the same building (122 Leadenhall Street, 225m). I think SO143 was just getting slightly too enthusiastic.
