Great contrast of old and new in London. No other city does it better

Really? I thought London’s buildings are quite distinguishable from other historic European cities. If you look at London’s classic red brick homes they’ve got their own character. [1](http://www.govopps.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/london_homes_10016559Sml-360×235.jpg), [2](http://www.housepainterslondon.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/house-painters-london9.jpg), [3](http://knowledgeoflondon.com/images/homehse.jpg)

I think London has a massive range of buildings but the only difference is that they’re mostly English. You will see medieval, Tudor, Elizabethan, Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian and more. What I think adds a bit of weight to London’s claim is that its buildings have got a prestigious History. Not just history ranging back to the Romans or medieval times but relevant history, where it has for the last few centuries been directly governing massive parts of the world. It was the capital at the time of the greatest power in the world and enforcer of Western/Anglo values. Values that are now established all over the world. It was the centre of global trade and finance. Even ‘Central time’ (or GMT) is based over London because they put it there.

Anyway, before I start getting too off topic, those pictures look very modern and impressive. I’ll return fire with [a summary of major building developments](http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?s=901d7d4d35935cf497cc755cc69f4503&t=1635846) in London. Towards the bottom you’ll projects ranging to $23 billion.
