Blimey, my mindset certainly hasn't caught up with "fast-track construction". The last time I was walking around the Carter Lane area south of St Paul's Cathedral - which I've just realised must have been almost two years ago! - there was still a Victorian post office waiting to be demolished not the eight storey concrete frame of its replacement.
It is fascinating how that picture shows clearly how Faraday House (the copper roofed monstrosity on Queen Victoria Street) and Unilever House (north west side of Blackfriars Bridge
) exceed the "St Pauls Heights" that all the subsequent buildings were forced to follow.
