Lots of 60-150m mid-high rises under construction too.
This is very true. I guess it can rival The City, as the City does not have an residentials... at all. So I guess it really makes CW a more 'convinient' Financial District and may attract more business AND more wealthy customers.

The City is also 'done'. In the sense that there's very little room for projects that haven't already been announced, under construction, or topped out.

Canary Wharf has room all around for immense expansion. The entire Isle of Dogs will probably be highrises before long. It's the one area of London with available land combined with a desire for tall structures.

Ahhhh yes this is true. I always forget about those.

Are they council apartments or private?

On the whole, private.

This is what the Irish Times has to say about the Development:
http://www.irishpost.co.uk/business/londons-canary-wharf-might-look-like-irishman-gets-skyscraper-go-ahead?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=londons-canary-wharf-might-look-like-irishman-gets-skyscraper-go-ahead

About 714 new homes are included in the tower. Very good news.

The City is far from done. Especially with The Pinnacle back on tack, One Lime Street, 40 Leadenhall, 100 Bishopsgate, and Heron Plaza.

Also, in the next year I believe there will be one of two more towers proposed, most likely between Lime Street and Fenchurch street where there is space - this would also connect 20FS to the cluster.

No offence, but if you feel the need to post something in a london thread 20 times per day, at least make sure it makes sense. The guy just said that all the announced project will more or less fill the city (a city is never completed, but you get the idea), and you go ahead and list all the already announced projects

Ahh very true, I mis-read that part. My apologies.

I believe so yes. The Columbus Tower does not really exist. Hertsmere has effectively just replaced it - although even now I believe a Chinese company wants to buy up the project. Either way; due to the big interest its most likely that it will get built.

I'm not sure if I understand which is the old design and which is the new one. I'd appreciate it if someone could clarify for me.
Thanks

The old design is the one with curved sides, the new design is the linear one with extruded boxes at the top

Seeing as this is going to be a residential tower, are there going to be any balconies?

It's most likely on some selected apartments - especially toward the top of the tower if you look at the rendering.

well the greenland group has bought this site and so it'll clearly be developed. oh, and the greenland group is owned by the chinese government. a few more deals like this and the chinese will build more properties in london than the british government.

Greenland has a track record of building superb-looking skyscrapers in China. Unlike most modern skyscrapers in that country - basically big boxes with cheap cladding - Greenland buildings have imaginative design with high-quality cladding. They also tend to hire the top international architects like AS+GG and SOM. Greenlands' involvement in this project is good news for London.

Coming from Toronto... You are calling Chinese skyscrapers boxy? I'm not trying to bash or troll but C'mon get real!
