You could always try looking in the other direction.
Do you know London at all?

Will, just ban him.

If he doesn't like particular buildings, fine, post why and start a proper debate about it. He's just trolling about London and posting crap in London threads, for the sake of it basically.

Oh didn't notice that. I thought it was topped out because the cladding is also coming up nicely

hey, i call it like i see it just like everyone else does..my comments arent directed at anyone so no one should be offended..

let's face it, for a wealthy city with a population of 10 million, london has a very wimpy skyline..the only thing london has going for it is its museums and phil collins..

And the most powerful city on earth, Washington DC, has no skyscrapers.....

Whats your point.....theres more to a city than skyscrapers.

Lol...you Chinese think that if you build a few skyscrapers and it makes a nice photograph, your city somehow becomes 'mighty and powerful'

...it doesnt work like that.

Its the people that make a city great, not its buildings.

Maybe one day, when you leave your immature teens behind, you might just learn that.

Its quite simple really, if you don't like a skyline or a city.. just don't go on its designated threads! it really is that easy

There are hundreds of threads in here that I don't go on because I have no interest in them, that's no disrespect to the people who love them and post on them regularly and if I don't go on the threads and tell those forumers 'I think this sucks' then they're none the wiser, so if you really hate our towers and skyline - just say it once (which you have) and leave it be, because a lot of us really love our skyscrapers which, whilst currently few in number, are also some of my favourites.


Back on topic, I really can't wait to see these turbines installed, which I imagine won't be far off given most of the crown is completed.

Hey mate.
What planet are you living on? Since when did having lots of skyscrapers make a good city? I'd rather live in London than live in some smoggy,grim,concrete chinese city any day.

This building without its topping would be just correct. With this futuristic head it is just outstanding! Gotham City would be envy of it...

gee... not a very nice building really - and i seriously wonder whether the wind turbines at the top actually do much or they're just there to get through GLA and local consultation.

London is arguably the most powerful city on Earth.

the turbines are cool, but the facade on this thing is just nauseating..london needs to go with more boxy, hardcore looking buildings and not this artsy fartsy crap..
