But I still have reservations about the domineering impact of such big buildings in central London, And I find it hard to get exited about a posh hotel and luxury flats.

i find it interesting that 50 storeys plus are considered "such big buildings"...in many other more adventurous cities 50 storeys would hardly count as skyscrapers. londons skyline is dominated by dull squat 8-10 storey structures to whom we have conservative (small c) planners and councillors to thank for. i for one am loving the idea of our city climbing higher and really exciting architectural projects both getting approval and actually being built... bring on the shard!
