  3. Thanks B1M for keeping us posted. Its just good to know what's going off around us instead of the claptrap that terrestrial tv spew out, which is nearly always politically motivated.
    Sincere thanks.
    John.

  10. Fantastic video! Really interesting to see how the King's Cross area has been revitalized from the city's plan to improve transportation along with the efforts to preserve it's history as well as the great presence of the world's leading information & technology companies. I would have loved to see a piece or mention about the newly built Aga Khan Centre as an important part of the vibrant and diverse international knowledge community that is also present here. https://www.agakhancentre.org.uk/

  12. As always, it's fascinating to see where some projects are headed, but was really impressed by the semi repurposing on the Gasholders structures. They look rather unique. Thx for posting.

  13. Given the population boom, I’m amazed that they’re still building mid rise structures and not taking full advantage of the land, which is at a premium. They are starting to build some tall skyscrapers but very few for a city and its population and size, does anyone have any feedback on this? I just would’ve assumed that by now there will be a lot more tall if not super tall skyscraper is being built to accommodate A city where urban sprawl is at its maximum, and can sprawl no further. If you can’t go out there’s only one other way to go, and that’s up. I’m curious to see how Landon is going to look in 100 years time, and I’m willing to bet it will be unrecognizable with dozens if not hundreds of new super tall skyscrapers for both business and residential. What do you think?

  14. No, London is now known to Brits as a dirty violent multicultural sh*thole completely detached in culture and values to the rest of the UK.

  18. I'd love a video on Notre dame cathedral reconstruction or just all cathedrals. Amazing pieces of architecture

  19. Non-Londoner here, London is one of the most expensive city on Earth, but I see quite a few neighborhoods that can be regenerated like Kings Cross or Nine Elms. Are there more potential places like these? Would love to see more B1M videos on these potential sites.

  20. Too bad London is less than 50% white for the first time in Earth’s history and the new station will be overcrowded with rags and dindus.
