I don’t quite know why I like skyscrapers, maybe it’s being brought up in the suburbs. Or perhaps how the Skylon at the 1951 Festival of Britain reaching for the sky amazed a young boy, and the liking for tall structures just sort of stuck with me.
No matter, I just do like ’em. So, it’s a pleasure to see that another skyscraper has been approved in the City of London, albeit only 36 storeys. It’s 1 Leadenhall. Here’s an artists impression of the City with this new skyscraper – it’s the one in the middle nearest to the Walkie-Talkie on the right.
