8 Canada Square - 200m
25 Canada Square - 200m
Tower 42 - 183m
30 St Mary Axe - 180m
Broadgate Tower - 164m
One Churchill Place - 156m
25 Bank Street - 153m
40 Bank Street - 153m
10 Upper Bank Street - 151m
Pan Peninsula East Tower - 147m
Strata - 147m
Guy's Tower - 143m

Hmm, I appear to see more than 3 buildings in that list...
Tell me, do they teach you Maths in China? Or is it more about how to survive in smog without gas masks and the correct way to eat a dog's ear?

Someone ban this bastard, please!

The facade is smart, high quality, and looks great.

Have you ever been to London? You are demonstrating a lack of knowledge and understanding of the city which certainly suggests you haven't. In which case, you really ought to keep quiet because your comments are making you look pretty silly. London has several high rise areas, all with different character, and already has plenty of boxy, corporate-style buildings at Canary Wharf. If they built this particular style all over the city, it would be completely bland and souless, not the thriving, diverse metropolis it is, and in many peoples opinion, the greatest city on the planet.

Guanhzhou or whatever its called has got 2-3 standout towers only, mainly the citic plaza and some old historics no one has heard about
we have the Gherkin, canary wharf complex, bt tower and many more proposed
plus: St pauls, tower of london, parliment building, tate modern
we have building people have actually heard about
the citic plaza is youre only triumph over those tinny white boxes that litter the city
our city is world famous and attracts millions of tourists every year
strata only adds to that refinement and quality
unless you have been to london as a hard nosed architectural critic i see no reason in falsely putting down london

Here's the view from the top -

If you look carefully, you can see Heron Tower between the Gherkin and Tower 42.

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..
first off, London has a nice skyline with interesting buildings. Second, London is in the top 3 when it comes to most powerful cities. Chinese cities build a bunch of tall buildings and then think they're all high and mighty. You've never been to london so don't even talk
