Don't forget that the resi component of this project also includes three other buildings and the refurb of the Light Bar, in addition to the 50 floor tower.

These comprise a 14 floor shared/intermediate rent tower, a 6 floor building of socially-rented units, and a 4 floor building of shared work space. The 14 floor tower will sit on a podium containing amenities for the tenants, retail units and a crèche.

In terms of the 50 floor tower, I think the steelwork should begin to rise sometime in Q3 this year, and will be substantially complete by the end of 2017. First tenants will probably move in Q1 2019 if all goes to plan.

How long do we reckon before the tower visually 'breaks away' from the low-rise piece?

I really do enjoy the contrast in scale between old and new in those photos!

Foster-Designed Principal Place Forming in London


Quote:
Prestigious architecture firm Foster + Partners has already embedded several of their works into London's ever-changing cityscape. 30 St. Mary Axe and London City Hall have become icons of contemporary architecture due to their unorthodox shapes and sleek glass exteriors. Foster's latest project in the city embraces these elements again in a new mixed-use complex called Principal Place. The scheme consists of residential, office, and retail programs surrounding a new public piazza.
