Well, good for you.

Anyway, I still can't believe this one is actually build after all this time. It just shows patients pays of sometimes.

Designs haven't be released. I'm confident it will be built.The same developer is managing it(Sellar) and he's managed to get a 310 metre tall tower in London get under construction, so it should be a breeze for him to get a smaller tower next to it get built(Hopefully). But then again,if EH started ranting about how its ruining the Aesthetic of the area and destroying the old feel of London(What a load of bull),then there may be a slim chance it will be built.But lets hope,the fact we have a supertall U/C next might increase the chance.

I swear some people still think Londons all cobbled streets and chimney sweeps, its not like there isnt a far bit of modern architecture there.

I think Kirgam was trying to say that Russia already has 300+ metre buildings which would make this not the first Supertall in europe.

Russia might be on the European continent, but it's not European culturally. Russia is more reactionary than Texas or Oklahoma. At least in Texas, killing journalists isn't deemed acceptable.

Then again, Britain isn't really "Europe". It's the UK.

Other people's opinions may be misleading sometimes. If I were you I would book a flight to London to check the city out in person.

Yeah I suppose all those the people that work on site for around 9hrs a day for 6 days a week are just pretending to do work. Still i'm sure you knew that yourself on your regular site visits from Guangzhou to oversee construction

It's been a long wait, but I'm still looking forward to seeing this rise. It will be great to see this done just in time for the Olympics.
