Taken from the 21st floor of Beetham tower.

The windows could do with a clean again.

Don't forget they've put paper across the windows during construction..

London is at 1.9% according to a piece on the same EY report here.

http://www.getreading.co.uk/news/bus...onomy-12265151

Reading leads at 2.5% per year, even that leading score isn't exactly fantastic by historical standards...

I would take all such forecasts with a heap of salt in any case, they turn out as often wrong as right.
