Dissapointed by the heights, but they are to be expected...at least that area will be heavily bulked out, which is a fantastic thing.

Dissappointed by the heights? They could be anything up to 235m

Sorry but that aint bad for a subsidary development to CW. I think it will be a superb development.

I count around 8?? towers (approx 100m+) in the massing models. Is that right?? Do they simply have an idea of how much floor space they intend to build, or have they gone ahead and allocated areas for each site??

We wont see any cores rising until Crossrail is completed I think.So we have about 10 years of waiting.

It has indeed. Demolition of the current site was scheduled to start in January but nothing happened. But Ballymore and the others behind this said they were committed to building this

Ok, it's just that the thread title still says Proposed. If we can get Will or another mod to change it, that would be great. This is one of my favourite projects in London, just because of the sheer size of it, it really will regenerate that area of the Docklands.
