Tall Storeys

 

London's tall buildings policy is to be tightened up following a rash of applications for skyscrapers including a proposal for a 460m tower - the world's tallest.

 

In a week when William Hague's mini-manifesto proposed demolishing more tower blocks, skyscraper schemes by Foster, Rogers, Piano, Marks Barfield and Grimshaw are among those on the up - in addition to M3 Architects' world-beating Ecotower bid in the Square Mile.
