London's crane count must run to a couple of hundred at least. Kings Cross/St pancras and it's environs have more than a dozen. Other large projects with at least half a dozen are white city, Ashburton Grove, Wembley and ctrl at stratford. A housing project at Old Ford in East London has four fair sized cranes plus smaller ones.
Cross any bridge in central London and you'll see cranes working on all sorts of sites.

By the way has any one noticed that cranes tend to be painted white these days where as in years gone by they tended to be mainly bright red. Any Ideas?

Also noticed that part of a crane has been erected on the waterfront at Battersea power station.
And don't forget that other small development happening in west London. What was it again? Something about a new terminal for quite a big airport...:)

The next phase of the development in Greenwich should also be kicking off next year. While the actual inside of the dome want use cranes (for fairly obvious reasons....) the new buildings on the outside will....

From Colliers International, Hong Kong

Ontario Tower is only 10 minutes walk away from Canary Wharf, a 20 million sq ft development of office and retail space. It is highly accessible by public transportation. South Quay Docklands Light Railway (DLR) Station and Canary Wharf with Jubilee Line Underground Station are both within walking distance. Westminster and The West End can be reached within 15 minutes via underground and excellent bus and taxi services are also available close by.
Someone's got a bit mixed up between Ontario Tower and 1 Millharbour. South Quay is nowhere near Ontario Tower - Blackwell DLR would, I think, be the nearest DLR station.

South Quay is right next to 1 Millharbour though.
