100 Bishopsgate is happening between the Gherkin and the Heron ^

And the pinnacle is gonna be somewhere behind the Gherkin in this picture, if I'm not mistaken.

The good thing is, if this is built as well as One Lime Street Square, you'd possibly have two buildings filling in the gap between the Walkie Talkie and the rest of the cluster.

On the other hand, if 100 Bishopsgate and The Pinnacle can't get going, what makes the developers think they can get this scheme financed and let?

170 meters

The Pinnacle would be behind the Gherkin tower in that picture.

On my calculations it's now the 65th building proposed/approved/U/C in London above 100m.

I don't know this area at all, but the plot looks big enough for a proper skyscraper! Maybe In the 210m or taller range

London doesn't need to build vanity height to make a statement. This is very well proportioned I feel for this area and allows other towers to sore above it building up towards Leadenhall and The Pinnacle.

You can't really grumble at what London is producing at the moment. Lots of 150m+ towers U/C, a few due to start, others being approved and lots being proposed. It's exciting times.

I can't help but feel that new City of London proposal would be suited better in Canary Wharf...

London City Airport launches £200m expansion plan

The owners of London City Airport have submitted a planning application for a £200m expansion of the Docklands airport which would create 500 new construction jobs.

The plans include new aeroplane parking stands to accommodate larger aircraft, a parallel taxilane to optimise runway capacity in peak operating hours and a terminal extension.

The airport is not proposing a second runway or any extension to the existing runway.

London City chiefs hope the plans will allow the airport to double its passenger numbers to six million over the next ten years.

Declan Collier, Chief Executive Officer, London City Airport, said: “Increasingly, this area is a focus for foreign investment – the recent announcement by ABP of its intention to build a multi-billion pound business park on Royal Albert Dock is one such example – and the connectivity to business centres across Europe, Eastern Europe and the Middle East that the airport provides, or will provide in the future, is central to this continuing.”

London City Airport’s planning application has been submitted to the London Borough of Newham for determination.

Space race fuels resurgence in London offices

Demand for offices in London has surged by nearly 40 per cent over the past year, as ambitious companies look to expand on the back of a resurgent economy, according to new data.

Adam Landau, property director at the commercial estate agent DeVono, which gathered the numbers, said: "The evidence we have of economic recovery has been directly seen via significant increases in instructions. With expected market rental growth, many businesses are future-proofing their businesses for the next five years."

While 90 per cent of the skyscraper space in The Shard, on the South Bank, is still unoccupied, and building projects in the City have stalled due to lack of funding, commercial real estate in the City's borderlands – such as King's Cross, Clerkenwell and Shoreditch – is in high demand.

Mr Landau believes that the interest in non-traditional locations has been driven by a search for better value.

He said: "The demand in bordering areas is due their lower occupational costs but almost equal quality compared with the traditional London office locations such as the West End and Square Mile.

"The City has kept a very corporate identity, while all areas directly around it have benefited from being a little alternative."

King’s College London wins permission to build new Docklands campus

London’s King’s College has won planning permission for a new campus in Docklands.

It was given the go ahead for a new “town centre” development on the former Mulberry Business Park at Canada Water that will provide 770 student rooms in four blocks, 33 affordable homes, a health centre, office space and shops.

King’s is also interested in expanding into an adjoining site at Harmsworth Quays printing works site where the Evening Standard was once printed. King’s, which was last week named one of the world’s top 20 universities, is the latest London academic institution to pursue bold expansion plans.

Imperial College is developing a £1 billion technology campus in Shepherd’s Bush. Work on the Mulberry site is expected to start next year, with completion by 2016.

Peter John, leader of Southwark council, said of the King’s project: “The decision supports the council’s aspirations to create a vibrant town centre for Canada Water and opens doors to the potential for a new campus in the adjacent Harmsworth Quays area. I look forward to what the students will bring to the area and hope that they will make it their permanent home in years to come.”

King’s also has plans for a new retail and hotel complex on a part of Borough High Street that it owns and for a major modernisation of its Denmark Hill campus. In addition, the university, whose alumni include poet John Keats and impressionist Rory Bremner, wants to redevelop the Quadrangle at its main historic King’s College site at a cost of £20 million.

Chinese developer picks London for global HQ

The Chinese company set to develop London’s Royal Albert Dock has said it will establish its global headquarters in the capital.

ABP said it will set up a headquarters for 100 staff at a location in London that has yet to be announced.

The announcement comes after the firm signed a £1bn deal with London’s mayor to build a business park at Royal Albert Dock near Beckton in East London.

The company’s new headquarters will be capable of managing £20m of projects worldwide.

If he opposes it, he will be accused of being anti-business.
