What do scalpels, cheesegraters and helter skelters have in common? They're all (admittedly pretty lame) names of towers due to be completed in London over the next few years.

In April, the 'London's Growing... Up!' exhbition, held by New London Architecture at its galleries in central London, will explore London's changing skyline, looking at the 200-odd towers with more than 20 storeys currently planned for the capital. The good news for impoverished house-hunters is that 150 of them are residential.

MT has seen some of the images. What's clear is that the Manhattan-isation of London continues apace - and whether you think that's a good thing or a bad thing, you have to admit, it looks pretty impressive...
