The only reason we haven't heard more about it is that this particular London bubble hadly involves any British people.

Incidentally, most of those south bank developments that stretch from Parliament to Battersea Power Station are as ugly as hell. One of the great missed opportunities of the last 20 years is that there was no coherent aesthetic master plan.
