Thanks to New London Architecture, we know London's about to become a veritable urban jungle, with 263 towers of 20 or more storeys either in planning or approved at the moment.

The number of tall buildings under construction has increased to 70 in 2015, up from 45 last year. In fact, if all the new residential towers are built, the capital will get almost 15,000 new high-rise homes. Not bad, considering the state of the capital's housing crisis.

But where will these towers be located? Will they cast a shadow over your home? We've mapped every single one of them here
