“I think they are a good addition to the City. It adds to the impact that London has as a financial centre. Plus, there are a lot of people to fit in such a small
space, so skyscrapers are a necessity.”

“I think the new buildings are a great idea, and will hopefully bring more people to work in the City. The designs are quite modern, but they fit in fairly well. It’s all part of the evolution of London.”

“A lot of companies moved to Docklands because there wasn’t enough space in the Square Mile, so it’s a good idea to build more. The Shard is an interesting design, but I’m not sure I would like to work at the top of it. The construction work doesn’t bother me – there’s always something or other being built here.”
