Keeping To An Architectural Theme,

nothing says the same forever,

 and that is certainly true of London's skyline, the City of London, also known as the Square Mile, occupies an area that stretches down from the Golden Lane Estate to the bank of the River Thames, it extends as far west as Temple Church on Fleet Street, and as far east as Aldgate, these renderings show a cluster of towers proposed for the eastern section of the City, which is already home to a group of inventively nicknamed skyscrapers including the Leadenhall Building by Rogers Stirk Harbour+ Partners, known as The Cheesegrater, and 20 St Mary Axe by Foster + Partners, better known as The Gherkin,

among the skyscrapers set to neighbor them by by 2026 is 1 Undershaft – a 289.9-metre skyscraper designed by Eric Parry Architects, nicknamed The Trellis after its expressed cross bracing, six of the 13 skyscrapers set to complete by 2026 will also include free public viewing decks at their tops, joining the sky garden of Rafael Viñoly's Walkie Talkie tower, these six are: the 85-metre 10 Fenchurch Street by Eric Parry Architects; 1 Undershaft by Eric Parry Architects, the 185-metre 6-8 Bishopsgate by WilkinsonEyre; Make Architects' 182.7-metre 1 Leadenhall Street; Arup's 2-3 Finsbury Avenue scheme; and PLP Architecture's TwentyTwo,

 a future view of the the "eastern cluster" from Fleet Street, 

 the seven other skyscrapers set to complete by 2026 are,

Kohn Pedersen Fox's 206-metre-tall 52 Lime Street or The Scalpel; the 181-metre 100 Bishopsgate tower by Allies and Morrison; the 164.3-metre 70 St Mary Axe by Foggo Associates; the 150.92-metre 150 Bishopsgate by MSMR Architects; the 78-metre 80 Fenchurch Street by TP Bennett; the 105-metre 130 Fenchurch Street by Farshid Moussavi Architecture; and Make Architecture's 170-metre 40 Leadenhall Street, as I said, nothing says the same forever!
