Building London



I was in a building 23 stories up yesterday, and I was struck by the number of cranes that are scattered across the landscape. And yes, in the rear of the frame is the broken crane on the building of St Georges Tower. You can see the wide view here http://extraspecialtreat.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/view-fromthe-top.html.

nice view - where did you take the picture?

Is that the view from the Euston Tower? I think most the nearest of those cranes are around the site of the former Middlesex Hospital, on Mortimer Street, just south of the BT Tower, although there are a few more further away.

Is that tall blockish building to the left (east) of St Georges Tower the Millbank Tower?

The wider shot shows Centrepoint and Strata on one side, and a pretty little Battersea Power Station on the other.

Crane: The official bird of London :-)

Every time I visit London, I am always guaranteed to see lots of cranes... and scaffolding. What a vibrant city -- constantly renovating and building.

It is indeed the Euston Tower, well identified, all.

I love the sight of those cranes. Shows life and investment in the future.
