Not a fan of this.. I don't like the proportions, the materials, detailing.. Just doesn't work for me.. I think this site called for something really adventous, there are some great buildings on London Wall but this is one of the worst..

Adventurous it definitely isn't. But it quite nice fill the space. And I like the suspended walkways.

I really don't get the white clad buildings with the really narrow vertical glazing.. It looks more like a data centre than an office...

The thinning out of the road with the cycle lane is the real game changer here, as well as the return of the ground level. I think this is the one that will be greater than the sum of its parts once completed.

Looking very much like the renders, even on a dull day.

Is this space between the ancient arch and the brutalist Court remaining? I quite like the contrast and space, works so much better than before. For some reason it makes the court look better than I remember it.

The garden looks nice. But it's all very 60s - clean modernist lines, buildings not following the street line, pedways..

Redeveloping the modernist refurbished Building on the left of the picture and it's stumpy eighties neighbour could do wonders for the area.

Excellent aerial above. Demonstrates such a mish-mash of styles from the early 1970s to the present. I actually like London Wall Place; the vertical white stripes and blue/black geometry work well and break up an otherwise rather monotonous roadside, the former a reminder of so many mullioned vertical buildings in NYC (Rockefeller Center West for example). Alban Gate has to be the one major culprit.

I do hope they retain in future No 5 London Wall (?) the refurbished Modernist slab as this is the only reminder of the street that was 1960s.

That would be City Tower (40 Basinghall Street, EC2V 5DE)

That road should be turned into a water feature or garden, bring the Barbican outside

Some update of this project for the wall panels. The contractor Byrne Bros install Dextra Groutec couplers in each panel reinforcement for fast installation of the precast. The braces are in place before grouting then to be removed after the grout has achieve a prescribed strength. The project is to be finished in 2018.
