News International will feature two towers - one of 122m/27 storeys, and another of 56m/12 storeys. These will stand mid-way between the City of London and Canary Wharf. This is the only rendering I've seen:

112m/25 storeys, approved in May 2004, awaiting a pre-let before construction can begin. It will stand to the north of the Minerva Building, and should help to bulk out the northeastern edge of the City cluster.

nezzybaby - It takes longer to take down buildings with asbestos because they have to go in by hand and remove it from all the walls before they can bring in the big machinery to tear it down. Otherwise there would be airborn contamenents.

Incredibly wonderful. In the back of my mind I want to London to stay the way it was before WWII but that's just bullsh*t.
