This was proposed 8 years ago..wow.

Did not realise till I looked at the date of the first post of the page.

Would make a nice extension of Londons skyline (if it ever gets built ), though they've reduced the number of floors.

I don't think there is any "if" about this project anymore, the "when" is later this month (site prep) and February (piling begins), that's the big news!

One Blackfriars Soon To Rise



London is undergoing a residential tower boom driven primarily by the flood of foreign money eager to take advantage of a cheap pound and favourable taxation. The latest project to benefit from this is the former Beetham Tower in Southwark, now being developed by St George.

Site preparation for the 163 metre tall development is due to start later this month with piling beginning in February 2013.

Good for London. For the city of its size, it should have a lot more spread-out clusters of skyscrapers. I guess it's hard though, with hundreds of beautiful old buildings.
Beetham looks pretty nice and will be a nice contrast to the concrete structures around it, which most likely won't last long.

Hopefully the other towers proposed next to this one will also go up in the upcoming years. It will create an interesting cluster.

How long does it usually take from piling to core growth?

It'll be well into 2014 before you see anything major above ground.

This thread seems to have died down, but the building itself is still going ahead. I've had a look in the UK section thread and unfortunately I can't find updates newer than the end of the March, so these will have to do. I don't live in London, otherwise I would get some myself. Once there are more updates posted, I'll make sure this thread's updated with the relevant photos etc.
