Really doesn't look like there's a skyscraper being built there. Looks more like a backyard. The backyard of some shoddy industrial building, even.

The London bridge area all looks a bit like a backyard, it's all down to bad planning. I can't help but like walking round there, the market is fab.

Kinda, it's definately quite a small space for a super tall. The whole London Bridge Quarter is being revamped though, so it won't stay like this long. Hopefully Guy's tower will be recladded too, so the entire area will look pretty shiny soon!

that is once nice render. Kinda a tight spot for such a tall building but the Chicago Spire if built takes the cake on tight spaces.

The webcam is already showing a large mobile crane. Nice to see things moving forward at a good pace.

Agreed.

I know space is tight there but untidy, cramped conditions like that can't be good. The area to the right of the crane (complete with portable generator (?) tucked away underneath) is a right mess.

Will be stunning skyscraper to look at eventually!
