I think its more an opinion about 'visual impact' rather than an actual comparison.

if it's just visual impact you're talking about then once you get over the wow factor of New york... it doesn't have much else. I find the design of the City of London's towers to be of a much higher quality, the shard, Bishopsgate tower, the gerkin and 122 leadenhall ( if it ever gets built ) are much nicer than anything i've seen in manhatten.

Strange, I wonder why. Maybe it's undergoing a slight redesign to increase it's chances of getting PP, if some issues have been raised.

Manhattan has many many wonderful and exiting buildings ...too many to list but we could make a start.....far more numerous than docklands (BTW why are you reffering to buildings in the City when the comment is about docklands?)

Docklands just looms out of nowhere and hits you in the face and is surrounded by water like manhattan.....

maybe in manhatten there are so many that they all drift into one generic underwhelming skyscraper and I compared it to city of london because that's where all the outstanding buildings are and it's alll one metro area.

Its not cancelled, just been withdrawn.The email from planning consultant and TH seems perfectly amicable so they are probably sorting out issues before resubmitting.

Remember Angel House got withdrawn only for it to be resubmitted a few months later.

Almost every major Isle of Dogs scheme is encountering problems, which is extremely frustrating. List of schemes:
-Millharbour Quarter
-Riverside South
-Heron Quays West
-North Quay
-Crossharbour (Baltimore Wharf)
-Arrowhead Quay
-Indescon Court (I think)
-Wood Wharf (I don't think it has problems but I've added it because it won't be complete until 2030)

These were perfect in catalysing the transformation of the rest of the peninsular (no offence meant to any of traditional residents reading this). This is a blow to East London's redevolpment. And I haven't even mentioned the failing City and Stratford schemes!

Half of the Great Eastern Enterprise Centre on 3 Millharbour has been demolished in the last couple of weeks, but there's no indication of what's going to happen there, and I can't find anything in the planning register.

Nothing will happen because there is no planning permission.

It's Back

http://www.costar.co.uk/en/assets/ne...illage-vision/

Quote:
Galliard has submitted a scoping report to planners at Tower Hamlets and outlined plans to build a sprawling mixed-use development called Millharbour Village at 3 Millharbour and 6-8 South Quay, E14.

The housebuilder submitted the report under the guide of Millharbour LLP, established as a joint venture between Galliard and Ballymore Properties, before Ballymore sold its stake in the development to Galliard.

The site covers around 6.37 acres on two plots on either side of Millharbour – Millharbour West and Millharbour East, on which up to 1.5m sq ft of residential will be built, or around 1,550 homes, as well as up to 161,000 sq ft on non-resi uses such as retail, restaurants, bars and educational.

A planning application for the joint site, dubbed the Millharbour Quarter, was previously submitted in 2009, but withdrawn due to lack of support by the Local Authority during the following year.

The site is currently occupied by a number of low-rise buildings, including a print works, an engineering firm, a vacant Audi sales centre, and the Great Eastern Enterprise Commercial Centre.

The Millharbour Village scheme, which will rise to between 18 and 40 storeys, would involve the demolition of all the buildings on the site, and will also include a new state-maintained primary school and replacement Montessori Primary School and Lanterns Arts Nursery, School of the Performing Arts and Studio.

Galliard wants to secure planning permission next year and expects the scheme to take five years to complete.

Sounds like a height reduction at up to 40f (vs 46fl for the old scheme). Maybe about 133m?
