Yesterday saw the planning approval of the highest building on the north side of the Thames.

Known as 1 Undershaft, the 72-storey tower will be the second-tallest building in Western Europe after the Shard.

With over 60 new 'tall buildings' planned for London, this planning approval sets a precedent for London's changing skyline over the next 20 years.

Whilst tall buildings provide space required in our major cities, I hope that our historical skyline is protected and enhanced with these new tall buildings; or we will loose the uniqueness on our world class capital.
