We could probably have such a cluster by 2020 provided that you stand on Primrose Hill and look East.

Great compilation of the future outlook. Residing on the docklands it's troublesome enough to work out, so how you worked out what goes where is great work.

I guess we'll never see good old Columbus Tower being erected :'( I really liked the design.

London from a vantage point isn't the best looking, but when viewed alongside these architectural edifices, they just look beautiful.

Your work has been commended enough without a n00b adding to it.

Nice developments. London looks small. I mean, Paris looks much bigger. London has more green areas i think?

Oh I'm so proud of London.

It's going to be a unique city by 2012, it's looking really nice and those two panos on the first page, just wow!

In this view (excluding the shard) I think the docklands look better than the city! The East is rising again!!!

The annotated version doesn't seem to be working. All I see is a DC banner.
