is Leadenhall definitely going ahead? if so then are these two towers going to be rising at the same time? it will be a serious building site if they are!

Leadenhall is U/C, they are doing basements works. Unless I'm mistaken, it's the furthest along of the 'big ones' at the moment.

London's boom is starting IMO. There are a number of 100m+ towers at various stages of construction:

Bishopsgate Tower (288m)
Heron Tower (246m)
Riverside South Tower 1 (236m)
Leadenhall (225m)
Riverside South Tower 2 (189m)

Broadgate Tower (165m)
Pan Peninsula Tower 1 (147m)
Strata (147m)
Landmark Tower 1 (140m)
Pan Peninsula Tower 2 (122m)
Nido (105m)
Royal London Hospital (101m)

At this stage there's a chance that some of the bolded ones might be put on hold, but there is absolutely no indication of that yet and every day they are getting closer to the point of no return.

I thought Riverside South had been put on hold?

Also, can't wait to see The Shard underway.

Nope, they are continuing with the basement works. Once the structure comes up to ground level, it is then when they will decide whether or not to press on.

JP Morgan Chase are now wanting to move their European HQ to Riverside South, in a deal which will see them take over 1 million Square Feet.

I read about that -- fantastic news! Looks like this will surely be built. By 2020, Canary Wharf will look like Manhattan!

Show these renderings to someone 10 or 15 years ago and I doubt they could have guessed that it was London! It's going through such a transformation. IMO this is why London has survived as a powerful city so long, reinventing itself is what it does best!

The Wolseley owners to open highest restaurant in London

13:54 | 14.10.08
By Deirdre Hipwell

The owners of the celebrity-favoured Wolseley restaurant on Picadilly have agreed to lease the top floors of the proposed The Pinnacle tower scheme in the City of London.

Rex Restaurants Associates, headed by restaurateurs Chris Corbin and Jeremy King, has agreed to take 13,000 sq ft of space for a restaurant and cocktail bar on levels 58 to 63 of the almost 300m high Pinnacle scheme. It will be open to the general public as well as office tenants and will have 360 degree views of London.

Rex Restaurants owns The Wolseley in Piccadilly and St Alban in Regent Street. Corbin and King were the former proprietors of Le Caprice, The Ivy and J. Sheekey.

Khalid Affara, managing director Arab Investments which will manage the development, said: ‘I am delighted to have reached agreement with Rex Restaurants Associates to provide the sort of high quality restaurant which The Pinnacle and its tenants expect and deserve. We look forward to them creating what will be one of the best restaurants in Europe as part of a truly iconic addition to the London skyline.’

The Pinnacle, designed by the international architect Kohn Pederson Fox Architects, will have 63 floors and around 1m sq ft of office space in the historic Bishopsgate area of London.

Demolition work on the site has been completed and completion is estimated for the first half of 2012.

Savills and David Coffer Lyons advised Arab Investments.
