"The era of tall towers that has transformed the face of the City of London is coming to an end, the man most widely credited for their creation has said.

"Protected sight lines, businesses downsizing and developers shifting their focus to renovations mean that landmarks such as the Gherkin, the Cheesegrater and the handful of towers now under construction are not likely to be challenged by further waves of newcomers, according to Peter Rees.

The chief planner for the City of London Corporation for 29 years until his retirement in April, Mr Rees has granted planning permission for the series of towers that have marched across the Square Mile’s skyline."
