When I see a design by Allies and Morrison I always feel bored and underwhelmed

Still a while until this one get some action. According to its website timescale, it is expected end of 2014 for the current tenants to vacate the site, with works begining at early 2015. Completion date is 2020.

They look great! There are enough non-glass elements in the facade to make it look interesting and not just another glass tower. The block shape is also a welcome addition for the non-CW parts of London.

Oh wow! This looks awesome. I do agree with what someone above said, this would maybe look better in Canary Wharf or the City but this is still amazing. Vauxhall could turn into London's 3rd Cluster now - especially with St.Georges Wharf nearby.

Gold stars from me!

I concur. London and Istanbul are Europe's most booming cities in this aspect.
