London Resurgent ~ Towards a Remade Skyline!

The FT's Property Correspondent, Daniel Thomas, has written a couple delightful pieces about Solid foundations for City resurgence and that the Rebranded City is not shocked by the new. Everyone should...
"...see the results of the 25-year career of the City’s top planner. Peter Rees has done much to help shape the modern financial capital, with a focus as much on the open spaces and sheltered walkways that keep the City humming as such key developments as the Gherkin-shaped Swiss Re building. Mr Rees’ sharp eye for design will now be seen in a host of new schemes under development, whose evocative names such as the Cheesegrater, the Walkie-Talkie, the Helter Skelter and the Stealth Bomber underline the importance put on creativity that is far removed from the drab square office blocks that characterised the City before the 1980s."
