I think the proposed new design was too stubbornly brutalistic, albeit a reclad is not a very inspiring outcome.

That's awesome) It takes 25 mins to get from Walthamstow to Westminster nowadays (at least, the way I use). On tube. So that's what, 10 mins on Crossrail?

Reality is, most investment is private. Housing prices are still rising as people from all over the world seek to buy property and investors feel as though London is a safe bet.

plus the city's growing at 85,000 a year, and not just from immigration. Due to the credit crunch more of the young are being drawn to the bright lights and increased opportunity, whilst at the same time less people are leaving - read: less people can afford to leave (usually on having kids or getting richer families tend to decamp to larger homes in the exurbs). Combine this with the current baby boom, international cachet, housing crisis, Green Belt restrictions and very profitable land (read: another rising property bubble) and ALOT needs to be built and to densify.

Here's a page from the 2012 Global Cities Investors Monitor report compiled by KPMG and the Greater Paris Investment Agency:





It is huge.

The Crossrail 2 route map:





I'm guessing you could do:

Walthamstow CentralVictoria LineTottenham HaleCrossrail 2VictoriaDistrictWestminster

You'd probably shave off a few minutes. The real benefit on your side of town is that it would decongest the Victoria Line immensely, as well as providing a direct link to south-west London beyond just Brixton.

Thanks for your great contributions. I wanted to ask why British forumers don't open threads for their own towers, there are 15 100m+ towers u/c in London now, but many don't have threads on the international section. In Paris and Frankfurt they open threads for anything, even 40m low rises, but in london, we have real 100m+ towers u/c that don't have threads on the international section, can someone open threads for the following towers
Lexicon 120m u/c no thread on international section.
Canaletto 115m u/c no thread on international section.
Lots road towers 115/90m u/c no thread in international section.
Kings cross lands plot t6 102m u/c no thread on international section.
Saffron square 134m u/c no thread on international section.
Southbank tower (kings reach) 127m u/c no thread on international section.
I know that there us so much more going on in London than Paris or Frankfurt, but we shouldn't get lazy and stop making and updating threads, if our towers without threads were being built in Paris or Frankfurt, they would all have threads, they even open threads for 30m low rises that londoners wouldn't even waste their time with. There is a section called general urban developments in the international section, it is for mid/high rises 50-100m, but British forumers have not opened threads for any of the London towers going up now.
I will show the numbers of 100m+ towers u/c in London, Paris and Frankfurt.
So here goes.
Paris=3
Frankfurt=2
London=15
I will now show the numbers of mid/high rises 50-100 u/c in London, Paris and Frankfurt
So here goes.
Paris=1
Frankfurt=2
London=68

We're shy, we don't venture outside our own forum much

I'll endeavour to provide threads and photos for the larger projects that aren't already covered.

Perhaps we just like to have everything under one roof. I certainly do. This is one of the best threads on here. Thanks again to SE9 for the updates.

That would be great, thanks, I can't do it myself because I'm only on my phone, I only ask because on the international forums they have no idea how many towers are going up in London, some of them have been saying three or four, when there is fifteen 100m+ u/c now, and 68 mid/high rises 50-100m.
I'm looking forward to this year, we've got lots of new towers about to start also, London, Moscow and Istanbul are pulling ahead of the rest of Europe, in a league of their own
