Skyscrapers are shooting up all over London, transforming a skyline once dominated by Big Ben and St. Paul's Cathedral.A new study has revealed that no fewer than 237 skyscrapers are being built or have permission to begin construction over the coming year across London.Staring up at the skyscraper, Andy Arwood called it "amazing".Murray said the wave of construction was approved in response to major population growth in London with around 100,000 people coming in every year, which could bring the city's population to nearly 10 million by 2030 and around 13 million by 2050 .Billed as London's most luxurious apartment block, the 36-story "Heron," for example, boasts a 6,000 square foot penthouse which went on the market this year for 18 million pounds ($30 million).London's more original-looking skyscrapers have earned affectionate local nicknames like the "Walkie-Talkie," by Uruguay's Rafael Vinoly, or the curvaceous "Gherkin" by British architect Norman Foster.
