Interesting design, could be very nice indeed with a cluster of residential buildings around it. Looking forwards to completion.

Any recent construction pictures? This with the extension of the South Bank tower and other developments is going to revolutionize South Bank.

The official groundbreaking ceremony was held today:

52 STOREY ONE BLACKFRIARS SKYSCRAPER BREAKS GROUND



Quote:
Work started today on the One Blackfriars skyscraper located on the Southwark side of Blackfriars Bridge. Architect Ian Simpson was joined by others including leader of Southwark Council Peter John for the groundbreaking ceremony today. Work on the site has been taking place for some time, although apparently not on the tower itself. A marketing suite doubling up as a glazing test site has already been constructed. Apartments in the building start as just under £900,000 for a studio, making this one of the most expensive developments in London.

Pretty good news article on this from "SE1":
http://www.london-se1.co.uk/news/view/7157

Quote:
"Our vision is to contribute positively to the London skyline, to create a beautiful and elegant structure that complements London's historic and contemporary icons such as St Paul's and 30 St Mary Axe," said architect Ian Simpson.

"It is through the creation of new landmarks that London reinvents itself and maintains its global status."
- I thought that was quite a positive comment. Also these are the same guys who built St.Georges Wharf futher down the river!

Then you will also get a huge redevelopment site near from that area which includes $1bn American Embassy.

Indeed, the new American Embassy will look stunning. It also has a moat around it - quite groovey


(yes, I just said groovey)


Either way, blackfriars will look stunning.

Indeed. London is completely transforming, yet it still is keeping its old character.

The cladding on this looks great, I know its difficult to keep track of all the different towers going up, but london threads on the international section are never updated, i know peoole are busy. On the uk section there is test cladding installed which look great
