Cheers, hopefully a mod could amend the thread title to avoid confusion.

It won't be that tall, City Airport has left this area with a 'glass ceiling'.

According to gegloma01 (post #578) it's 1 metre taller than One Canada Square, which would make it 236m AGL.

How well occupied are the other Landmark towers, is there demand for these flats?

No idea about the occupancy rate.
Prices are not exaggerated given it is in London, and in the centre of one of the main European business district. Example: Level 43, 151 sq.m is to buy for £ 1,550,000.

Don't see any good news. Looks like these buffoons in TH will reject anything that is an actual skyscraper in a skyscraper area.

Well, if they're quoting the London Plan in their opposition, then there is actually method in their madness, and regardless of how it should be interpreted, this is clearly a problem that goes beyond Tower Hamlets, and involves the city wide government, which indicates that if there ever was a reason for the Mayor to get involved and demonstrate exactly what the approach should be towards this sort of density, now would be it.

Don't know how there can be such an opposition to density considering the lacking in housing at the mo.

I know, guys, I have to contain myself not to have a rant. I really think that CP, Arrowhead, Cuba, Skylines and so on could transform CW into something really really special - instead we witnessing these endless wrangelings over the height and size of the proposals. I mean it is 21st cent, guys at TH, hello?!

Hi everyone, I just thought I'd pop in and let you all know about a thread in SSC's The Barracks re the Falkland Islands issue with Argentina. If any of you would like to join the discussion and possibly vote in the poll which is asking if you agree that the Falklands should have the right of self determination or should they be handed to Argentina, then that would be great.

This residential tower will not be overshadowing a residential area, so this rationale to reduce the tower height would not stand up at this particular site.

at worst, it will be reduced by 17m, as the 216m version has already been approved.
