From leytonstonia's blog.

Construction continues apace at The Heron as demolition for Heron Plaza set to start shortly

Sir Robert McAlpine, the family-owned UK building and civil engineering company has been on site at Milton Court in the City of London since July 2010, constructing the 36-storey residential tower, The Heron for Gerald Ronson’s Heron International as part of a £115m development deal that will also deliver a new world-class home for the Guildhall School of Music & Drama on the lower floors, moments from the existing Barbican Arts Centre.

The residential-led scheme comprises the 8 floor Guildhall School of Music & Drama, which includes two basements levels and then a 28-storey residential tower above. Designed by David Walker Architects, the tower element, which sits at the eastern end of the site, will provide 284 city apartments, which range from the 398 sq ft Island Suite to the 1884 sq ft 3-bed apartment with the main entrance located on Moor Lane at the north eastern corner of the site, closest to Moorgate.

Incorporating a 608 seat concert hall, a 227 seat drama theatre and a 126 seat studio theatre, the school will occupy the entire site footprint. Sir Robert McAlpine has already commenced construction of the cores and the concrete superstructure frame that is built around it, with priority currently being given to the eastern side of the school, which the residential block will sit on and in particular the critical aspects of the structure that will support the seventh floor transfer level.

The eastern core is currently up to level five with the superstructure to first floor. Once that entire structure is completed to level seven however, then the residential towers core and superstructure will continue to roof level and the western end of the site will be constructed to roof level. Currently, the western end of the site is up to core level five with superstructure to basement level.

Three facade mounted twin passenger/ goods hoists, which will be used principally for external cladding and internal fit-out will arrive on site soon and will rise with both the school and tower elements. Despite the development not due to complete until 2013, Heron International announced in December 2010 that 150 of the 284 apartments had already been sold off plan. With the 230m tall Heron Tower now complete and Sir Robert McAlpine on site at The Heron, construction of the recently approved Heron Plaza is closer than ever.

It will boost the residential market, it's close to the City.

As a matter of fact, it is in the City - just not in the main highrise cluster. It'll make a nice mini-cluster with Citypoint and Ropemaker Place.

Such a shame that one side of this residential tower is facing another office one!
