The Shard, Thames River and the City, view from Southwark Bridge
London's relatively clear skyline, once dominated by St Paul's Cathedral and, later, by Canary Wharf, the Gherkin and the Shard, is likely to get an awful lot more crowded over the coming years, with almost 250 tall towers proposed, approved or already under construction.
A survey by the New London Architecture (NLA) thinktank suggests that 236 buildings of more than 20 storeys could be on the way, 189 (80%) of which are intended to be residential blocks.

Good composition. The modern Shard towering over the Thames with the old bridges leading to Tower Bridge.
Who needs more twenty story building to ruin London's skyline.
