"The only way is up for London skyline"

Sorry that this story is over two weeks old, but for anyone who hasn't seen this or a related article, I thought that it might be of interest. Sam Jones in The Guardian on Thursday 13th March reported that almost 250 tall towers are "proposed, approved or already under construction" for London.  The New London Architecture thinktank has released a report saying that 236 of the new buildings will be more than 20 storeys high, with 33 of them between 40 and 49 storeys and 22 of them with 50 or more.  19 % are already under construction and 48% of them have already been approved.  77% will be in east and central London with Tower Hamlets, Lambeth, Greenwich, Newham and Southwark being allocated 140 of the 236 towers.
