Planning permission for the new updated design has just been granted...don't worry, still basically the same design, but the new owners of the scheme Berkley Homes, made some adjustments, so it had to go through planning again.

Construction starts in 2013.

What is it with all these bulging towers in London these days, this and 20 Fenchurch St?

Even though it is located in a minicluster I'm not exactly a fan of skycrapers popping up all over the city. It would be better if London focused its highrise construction on 3 or 4 main clusters instead.

But at least it is a decent design.

Here's a link to the news letter http://www.stgeorgeplc.com/index.cfm?articleID=852
It also states the tower will be 170m, I'm hoping this is AGL and we've got a height increase.

I totally agree with you. That's the reason I really like the Vauxhall plan, we'll have different skyscrapers of good design all together over there, it will be an awesome Skyline. But with a lot of towers all over the city it looks a pit of chaos and disorganisation.

I can't wait for the Boomerang to start, it's been one of my favourite projects since the beginning.

Hope somebody will post a photo soon to show us what the site looks like before work.

It's a bloody huge hole... best observed from the top deck of a bus

Here's ground level streetview, the swanky hoardings are relatively new

Cheers Tubeman . The hoardings weren't there when I left London in 2009, the site looks nice from now on. It's getting really interesting...finally!
